thought it was gonna suck, ended up crying
9 June 2018 | by jella-16842See all my reviews

I just wanted to watch another stupid movie to keep myself distracted. I had no idea that this movie would touch me so deeply. It was funny and sad. The name of the movie is stupid which lead to me thinking it would be another useless Netflix movie. But my assumption turned out to be wrong. I'm definitely gonna watch it again. In my opinion it was better than Love, Simon.
