Broship with well-known actors
15 November 2020 | by flashlightreviewSee all my reviews

A bunch of middle-aged men reminisce about the times they had earlier in life. The "Buddy Games" were a concept they developed to have fun, win among friends and create memories. After a more serious incident they lost touch for a few years but reconvened to have a last competition.

The plot is not complex; old friends coming together to have fun again is not something we haven't seen before. But the quality acting with well-known actors allows for a fun time.
