One of the worst films i ever seen.
23 December 2017 | by litchlordSee all my reviews

This movie was horrible, the actors sucked, the little girl looked like a boy, the plot was super dumb, even the children watching the movie quickly lost interest and left to do other things. I wish i could give this film a -10. I am shocked they spent 2 million to make this film, i could have done a better job with a cell phone camera and homeless people.
