Thoughts

I really loved this film, it was so good in that it totally embraced the cliches but then didn’t always stick to them. I thought it was going to be another one of those ’let’s go home and pretend we’re a couple’ movies, but it didn’t do that. It threw in a blind date curveball. I loved the quirky family, although they interfere way too much, and I love that there was an underlying friendship, always, and it was just about taking that risk. Lovely. Plus, there was a dance routine to Britney. SOLD.

Rating: 5 / 5
