Just plain horrible! There are things about Bob Sagat I just didn't need to know! The guys acted less mature than the girls (kids)! If it was really like that in real life, that's sad... just plain sad. Horrible movie! May have ruined Full House for me, but I will try to watch it and forget this movie. 😬

Okay guess it needs more words so terrible worst movie I've ever seen. I love full house but hate this movie. Guys don't seriously act that way in real life do they if they do that pathetic. Not a fan of Bob Sagat anymore if he truly acted that way. Ugh Seriously I have to add more than this for the post to count! Why do I have to say so much???
