Review:

Wow that movie was darker than I expected it to be. I don’t consider that a negative it’s just an observation. I really don’t think most children would have picked up on it, though. It was more for the adults.

I found myself crying throughout the whole thing and really wished my daughter was awake so that I could hug her. I’m apparently hormonal right now lol

It was a cute movie, I thought the concept was cool, but I don’t think I need to own it. Definitely watch it if you haven’t, but at your own leisure.

4/5

Reviews:

Within the first five minutes I was laughing so hard I snorted. This movie was hilarious. It’s a not so subtle riff on romantic comedies. It’s not as over the top as Date Movie, which makes it perfect.

I lost track of the times I laughed so hard I almost cried. Such a hilarious movie. Really the only negative was that it was too long. By the end I was ready for it to be over. It was funny but there’s only so long you can take it.

If you like Wet Hot American Summer then you’ll love this movie. If you love romantic comedies than you could potentially like it, depends on if you’re able to laugh when all the tropes are pointed out.

4/5
