Oh boy
24 July 2019 | by wwlugoSee all my reviews

Oh dear, what to say about this "movie?"

It felt a lot like watching a bad Hallmark movie but with more swearing. It wasn't good. The acting was forced, the actors ill-suited to the roles, the premise silly and far-fetched. Nothing about it seemed believable. As for chemistry between the two leads? Non-existent. I honestly felt the gal playing the lead's sister was far more suiting for the main role. I watched it on a Netflix and Chill kind of a day and truly wish I'd read the reviews first... or read a book... or anything other than this movie.
