definitely a laughing out loud situation
17 February 2019 | by The_Mich_See all my reviews

Just a great funny, uplifting and easy movie. it doesnt ask you for much, it lets you relax and have a good time. Dark and corky comedy at its best. Good acting, lovable characters. All the characters could have turned out to be played out so stupid or caricaturesque, but the actors do a great job. Its certainly a 'lifter upperer'
