Goofs

Why the bad reviews
13 June 2020 | by nelliegoonerSee all my reviews

I loved this film. The acting was great. The female leads perfect. It was so entertaining. Plenty of dark humour. I don't often leave reviews but quite honestly the negativity is totally unfounded and this movie is well worth a couple of hours of your life!
