CGiii Comment

As sweet a film as it is...it is a little convoluted.

Ever heard of a lawyer who accepts wrestling lessons in lieu of hard cash? No?!? Well, look no further, here she is!

Look...take it with a pinch of salt and suspend your disbelief for 80 minutes...the time flies by...and, a little treat will be had by all.

Yes, it could have gone deeper...race relations, loneliness...but, it is what it is...a light-hearted, romantic comedy...and, on those levels, it performs and delivers perfectly.
