Movie of the year! I love a good twist! Amazing story with the perfect cast..
15 September 2018 | by brandonmckay_lfc1See all my reviews

This is the perfect movie if you know what you're getting into, a mystery/comedy. I'll keep this short & spoiler free but Blake Lively & Anna Kendrick have wonderful chemistry. The entire casting was perfect. Feig amazing again with his work. The story keeps you guessing the whole way & once you think you've figured it out, another twist happens. I've seen this multiple times & will be going again. I recommend you do the same.
