A bit underwhelming
20 January 2020 | by julysidneySee all my reviews

The trailer for this movie made it seem like it would be cute and funny and maybe even a bit inspirational. If nothing else enjoyable. But right off the bat I had trouble diving into the story because the wigs on Christmas and Boss were distractingly bad. Additionally the dialogue felt weird- not natural at times and didn't always flow with the emotions of the scene. There was a point halfway through the movie that I thought maybe I would enjoy the story better if I just read the script instead. Somehow it felt like the music and the cinematography and the dialogue would be mismatched at times and if you just isolated one from the others then it might be better. The actors all did a good job, really outselling their characters. The problem is they didn't have much to work with as far as dialogue. It almost felt like a waste of talent. The movie wasn't bad it just wasn't good. It didn't make me feel anything and I probably wouldn't watch it again if I had a choice. It's just okay.
