Guys guys! Cloris Leachman is amazing!
9 May 2017 | by mdr1393503See all my reviews

OMFG I love love love this film. What a hidden gem. I was so blown away by the performances. Cloris Leachman still has it and is still one of the funniest people on the planet! The supporting casts keeps up with her, which is no small feat. Hats off to the whole cast. The writing and directing are spot on with great comedic timing. Hope to see more from everyone involved with this charming and hilarious film.
