Excellent script and gender content

There’s much more in every one of us than what one can see…
A clever script despite the overcharged feel-good ending that takes off a bit of the movie sharpness
Appreciated by the public, certainly not by the critics

Within the first 10 minutes, you know how the movie is going to end and why…
Awful colors, bland music, cardboard personages, stupid situations …
And for those who didn’t get it, the challenging message is ‘there’s nothing like home” … Did I forget to mention the colonialist touch?
Probably the best bad movie to ‘enjoy’ watching right now
