Careful what you wish for

I'm not gonna lie... I'm a huge Nick Jonas fan!! I honestly don't know how to feel about this movie. I mean it had it's good parts but it just didn't come off as original. I've seen other movies with similar plots so it was very predictable!! Still a Nick Jonas fan and his sex scenes were awesome lol js

This title has:

Too much sex
