Visitor Comments
Ian Douglas: Just as in the States, the distributors chose to open this opposite another blockbuster, which is odd, because this movie is actually pretty good. It's not a rom-com in the traditional sense, although it does have aspects of that genre. More of a male conflict-and-bonding affair. The trailer does not do it justice, it seems more tailored for an American audience. Enjoy.
