I give this amazing piece of literature a 5 star. This is great representation for tall people. The Swedish dude was amazing and looked perfect.

Great role models
age 12+

Great film only for short people

I think this movie is pathetic because honestly it’s catering for people that are unsecure about their height and think six foot one is tall. Literally I am two inches shorter and never have gotten shame for my height. NO ONE CARES!!!! Also there’s a lot of first world problems that literally mean nothing.
