Is this film better than any of that woke stuff which falls out of Hollywood nowadays? Yes, definitely.
Unfortunately, we live in a global world where the influence of Hollywood spreads far beyond USA. Don't get me wrong, as far as film-crafting is concerned, this film doesn't share any traits with Hollywood flicks. However, seeds of a creeping wokennes can be found. It manifests differently and it's not as bad but I fear it's a sign of things to come.
All in all, the film is fun, albeit a little bit slow at times. Older people will appreciate it more. If you liked Gran Torino, then you are going to love this one (if you like comedies as well). The idea of Janzurova as a female and inept version of the old Clint Eastwood is especially funny.
