Boring and unwatchable
6 November 2019 | by dmchatSee all my reviews

This movie was really boring. The music scenes were okay, but didn't do anything to move the story forward and were too long and did I mention boring?

The characters weren't very funny and the chemistry was forced. The parts that were suppose to be funny weren't.
