Going into this movie I didn’t really think i was going to like it. I usually don't like watching movies because I get bored quickly or distracted . Throughout the movie I did laugh quite a lot as it was funnier than I expected. At times it did get a bit boring but was enjoyable because of the slow development of the plot. The actors portrayed believable characters, however, think I would have liked to stay home and watch it on tv rather than paying to see it in the theater. I would give this movie a B, because it didn't meet my expectations, but it did make me laugh.
