Thoughts

This was a spur-of-the-moment choice - pick something random off Netflix and see how it unfolds. It was good actually, a slightly crazy idea but at least a relatively original one. The two leads were good and they had great chemistry together, and there were moments that really made me laugh - the Tiffany song in the car was brilliant.

I wouldn’t say it was anything to write home about, this movie, but it was an entertaining 90 minutes.

Rating: 3 / 5
