Glad I didn't listen to the star rating!
5 March 2019 | by beckycorreiaSee all my reviews

I wanted to see this movie when it originally came out and put it to the side and saw the terrible review rating and didn't watch for over a year. I just watched it and it def wasn't terrible and I had quite a few laughs and would call it good movie. Not great, not mediocre but pretty good!
