'pooppacoopa' you're an idiot....why do people bother submitting a nonsensical review for a movie they've obviously never seen? I loved this film, I was surprised at it's low metascore...I thought it had a wonderful script, beautiful acting, and I laughed and cried throughout. It was absolutely precious.

Best enjoyed as a sampling of Ms. Zorrilla's combustible energy and still dazzling screen presence. Full Review
