Heartfelt storyline supported by genuine laugh out loud moments
31 January 2019 | by kevin_k_andersonSee all my reviews

It was a great movie. The characters are cute and the story is well thought out. They did a great job making it funny without relying on "adult" inside jokes. It reminded us of the family-oriented comedy tv shows of the 90s. Really, we enjoyed it from start to finish and plan to recommend it!
