Ignore the bad reviews. I'm glad I did
21 July 2018 | by mikegtkSee all my reviews

This is my first review. I felt I had to give this movie some love with all the hate it was getting. People are so harsh these days... I almost didn't watch the movie due to the low rating and bad reviews. My wife and I decided to give it a try anyway. We went into it with zero expectations and ended up laughing quite a bit. We were both surprised at how much we ended up liking the movie. It's full of stupid-funny humor. I wouldn't pay to see it, but it was great for popcorn on the couch at home.
