Reviewer’s thoughts: I must admit first and foremost, that I am a little biased. We were quoted not once but TWICE on the back of the product! This is quite possibly the coolest thing a journalist can experience when reviewing a film. With that being said, I genuinely loved the film! I thought it tugged at all the heartstrings, made you root for a group of unlikely heroes and maintained a perfect balance of heart and comedy.

I received the DVD/Blu-ray/ Digital combo pack for review, and it is a great product if you’re a fan of the film – or if you’re a fan of heartfelt comedies but have yet to see the film, I’m confident you’d be very satisfied picking this up as well! I love that it is a combo pack. It’s really a 3-in-1 in terms of fully getting your money’s worth on a purchase. The combo pack includes a digital download code, a DVD disc, and a blu-ray disc. The artwork for the product is very pretty and also perfectly in align with the film itself (it’s a pet peeve of mine when the artwork isn’t really reminiscent of the film it’s trying to sell). In this case, it’s perfect. My one complaint here is that there are no special features on this product. That’s my favorite part of purchasing any DVDs or Blu-rays, and for whatever reason they’ve chosen not to include any special features. Even so, this product is still a great buy. I highly encourage you to pick up your copy today! You can purchase one for yourself HERE!
