Thoughts

I don’t understand what this film is. It’s supposed to be a comedy, I think, but it’s not at all funny. It’s not a rom-com because it’s a bit too creepy for that. And it’s not a drama because pretty much nothing happens. It’s so dull! I don’t understand how such a great cast can make something so boring.

Genuinely the only good thing about this film is that it made us watch The Graduate.

Rating: 1 / 5
