I Hate Netflix For This
4 November 2017 | by parveenjassalSee all my reviews

This movie is terrible. I'm wondering how it got made. It seems like the director was attempting to make a high-brow film that comes off more like an arrogant 13-year old's Philosophy essay. The main actress looks like she was fed the lines one minute before every scene was filmed. The lines are reminiscent of a Sunday Hallmark film. The country singer character seems like a caricature of country singers which was almost insulting. The cameos are bewildering, like an uncle bragging about knowing the President.

It's a Painful, and I repeat Painful watch. Why would Netflix stream such a movie? It's a sight for sore eyes. I understand now that the International Version of Netflix has no respect for its viewers.
