Original, funny, authentic, catching.

Finally an American comedy that made us laugh and enjoy every moment. I recommend this 👌 totally, the characters are brilliantly chosen! The plot, the stereotypes... the director studied before and created something so original and pleasing to watch. Loved it ❤
