Underrated on IMDB
2 February 2020 | by valeka-56250See all my reviews

I'm writting this comment just to say that here on IMDB this movie is so underrated. I usually consider that movies rated less than 6 are bad so I almost missed this one. Quite decent and funny family comedy. Comparing with current Hollywood commedies rating can go up to 9/10.
