I don't get the hate
17 January 2017 | by (Hungary) – See all my reviews

I really don't understand why this film is hated so much. It's a comedy. It's only purpose to be funny and entertaining and it is. Yes, some jokes are over the top, but the whole film and the plot is over the top, so there's nothing wrong with that. I liked the original version, but honestly I like this one even more. The female leads were funny and every one of them has a different personality (yes, over the top personalities but still it's fine) I think people want to be more than it is: it's a comedy that sole purpose is to entertain and make you forget your daily problems for a few hours, and it definitely achieves that purpose.
