This is a great Sunday afternoon movie for one of those days when it's either too hot to leave your apartment or too cold to leave your bed. It's lighthearted, funny and doesn't require that much brain power to follow. Whether you need to unwind after raging all weekend or your on a Netflix and chill binge I would definitely put this on your list.
