A surprising trip to the movies
31 August 2015 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

Let's be honest.

Vacation isn't one of those must see movie blockbusters, and would probably be one of the last choices for anyone to watch for the month.

On the other hand, its much easier to arrange a group movie outing as the chances of everyone watching that is pretty low ;)

The ratings for this particular movie are quite bad(reference Rottentomatoes), which is no surprise as most crude comedies are rated so. It wasn't as crude as I expected it to be though.(then again maybe thats because it was moderated in Singapore)

To sum it up, we went in with low expectations. But! I could hear the hall filled with laughter through-out the movie! and we came out smiling and discussing about the funny parts as well. All in all an enjoyable movie experience :)

Yes, it's not gonna win any awards or sure. but for anyone looking for a light-hearted movie packed with laughter, WATCH THIS! :D I was honestly afraid of drinking my soda for fear of spurting it out from laughter.
