If you have a subtle & cheeky sense of humour…this will likely be a fit! If you’ve received belly laughs from ‘Keeping Up with the Joneses’, ‘Hot Pursuit’, and ‘Bend It Like Beckham’…this might also keep you chuckling and re-watching scenes (just to see how many times you’re able to laugh at the punchlines!) 🙂

(Shame that a number of reviews stress more of the ‘Rom’ than the ‘Com’ —- I feel like more viewers would be drawn to the film if they new how much they’d be laughing!)
