More fun than any comedy movie I saw in the last 10 years!
10 December 2019 | by runeb-2See all my reviews

I saw this in the cineplex film night in Mannheim in french with german subtitles.

Lovable characters and the jokes are not pulled by the hair into the scenes (if the german proverb "bei den Haaren herbeigezogen" exists in english). Not comparable with the mainstream comedy movies - most of them american - I saw.
