Burnout is a serious illness. But what would movies be, if not something to cheer us up, even about something as sad and curious as this? Exactly and while the cliches are smelling quite bad, the overall tone is nice and the actors are really giving it their best.

So if you like a bit of drama mixed in with your comedy, you could do far worse. Predictable from every and any angle you watch it, this still should be able to make you chuckle along the way. Decent effort overall and achieving what it sets out to do
