Metascore (Critics) Rating 5.4/10
IMDB User Rating 6.1/10
This movie links comedic and serious themes, sadly it falls just short on both.
There is no doubt that the true story had a comedic slant to it and the screenplay tries to reflect this but it just doesn't really work.
It's ok, but a very low budget feel to it does it no favours.
MGN Rating 6/10
