Where is the comedy?
1 September 2018 | by ashley-kleynhansSee all my reviews

It really annoys me when I waste hours of my time watching a movie that is supposed to be a Drama/Comedy but there absolutely zero comedy content in the movie whatsoever.

If its a drama, it should be categorized as a drama and not as a drama/comedy, so that you can ensure that you're in the appropriate mood for watching it.

The movie is extremely boring, in fact more boring than watching paint dry. Its probably aimed at a younger audience and I just don't get it.
