Better Than I Expected!!
24 July 2018 | by sarahilayda1See all my reviews

This movie is way better than some reviews make it to be, and definitely funnier than most of the more popular new comedies.

Don't get me wrong, I'm very picky about comedies but this movie just made me chuckle all the time!

It has mostly physical comedy, trash comedy and also lands some nice puns, one had me laugh for a solide minute. If you liked movies like Daddy's Home, Why Him?, Step Brothers, you'd like this too.

Acting is good, story is simple, characters are quite intriguing as well. If you're a comedy lover you gotta watch this, definitely worth it.

It's not a masterpiece nor great it's just very enjoyable in an evening for relaxing and having a couple laughs.

7/10
