10 Stars over and over again!
10 August 2018 | by babycakes-45269See all my reviews

I have to say it has been a long time since I rated a movie 10 stars. This was by far the best movie I have seen in a long time. The acting was superb, it sends a message that everyone can relate to. Whether you were the fat kid, or you were a bully. You will walk away from this movie feeling good, and reminiscing about your youth. Thank you for this amazing movie!
