So as soon as I saw the cast of the movie, I knew it was going to be a great one, I didn't even have to watch the trailer to know that. This movie is a mixture of comedy, sadness and happy vibes. It will leave you feeling happy and wanting to make the most of your life.

I would highly recommend this movie to anyone who wants a feel good adventure!
