Wow, Some People Really Hated This Movie
19 May 2019 | by koconnell-37212See all my reviews

I would watch it just for the actors, and I did, and thoroughly enjoyed it. It's meant to be fun and it is. It's inspiring. The women look fabulous. Garcia, who I never really liked much, I liked a lot in this movie. This movie says, "You're old, so what? You're not too old to do something fun."
