Neither Paul, nor Erasmus, are ready to give up their extravagant lifestyles to be parents, but maybe this little kid has a thing or two to teach them about the value of family.

Erasmus: It does matter to me.
Paul: It doesn't matter. And I can't stand it anymore.

Just so sweet
30 June 2018 | by dcstar-54315See all my reviews

I never ever write a review or leave a feedback on a movie. But this movie was just so CUTE and Lovely. It made me laugh and story was great. This may not be your type of movie but i enjoyed it a lot.

All actors were great and entertaining in their roles. Starting was bit confusing but as time goes, all become perfect.

Just enjoy.
