A great addition to an evening and a bottle of wine
8 August 2017 | by alexonlifeSee all my reviews

Light optimistic comedy. Sometimes even deep analysis on man-woman roles in this world. And not vulgar at all. Happy end included.

From the title I expected a banal Hollywood teen comedy with under belt humour. After the trailer I decided to give it a chance. It's no easy job to play a middle aged woman with that little problem. And Audrey Dana made her work just great.

Can be highly recommended to relax after a hard day.
