Much much better than expected!
17 April 2019 | by markacuttSee all my reviews

I don't usually write reviews - this is my first one on IMDB.

Usually with smaller productions like this you have a ton of fake reviews and usually they're pretty dismal.

But I'm in Scotland, UK - and have just watched this movie.

And I have to give credit to the cast and crew! It's brilliant!!

Much better than expected. I've given it 9/10 and that's VERY high for me.

Mainly because of how hard they tried, the humour, the cast, and all done on a budget. But looked professional enough to be a mainstream movie.

It was very engrossing and addictive. I really could connect with the characters.

So do yourself a favour - and watch it!

It may not be to everyone's taste - but my GF & I thought it was a lot of fun and we're in our 40's!
