| Very Enjoyable with a realistic story
This movie was paced really well and the characters were are very believable. I was especially suprised I enjoyed Cyndi Lauper's acting. Quite Good.

I am a Christopher Walken fan so probably would enjoyed it more than others. Even so it was a good, down to earth story with some morals.

It was interesting, funny and really very enjoyable. I liked the quirky humour and was glad I watched it.

I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

See it.
