That's one party I won't attend again.
19 December 2018 | by deloudelouvainSee all my reviews

The Party's Just Beginning... well after watching it there wasn't any party on my couch. The movie was pretty boring to watch, senseless, with a story not interesting enough to keep you on the edge of your seat. It's a story about depressed people, but not even a good one. The acting of Karen Gillan and the rest of the cast isn't bad, far from it, but if you have a lame story it doesn't matter how good you act, it still remains a lame movie. It's one of those movies I watched once and that I will never watch again as there are thousands and thousands better movies.
