My Review:
Having seen that Netflix brought out a new comedy movie this week I thought I would give it a watch and it actually surprised me with how good it was.

The movie is about a group of teenagers who decide to go camping and one of their friends ends up cutting his dick off and it is up to his friends to deliver it to the hospital before he ends up in surgery and losing it forever.

I liked this film and it did make me laugh thoughout as it had the same style of humour as which is in American Pie. I also thought that having the teenagers rather useless and the situations in which they end up in over trying to get the dick back for their friend was brilliant and brought up all situations both real and not but it brought the film together really well. The love story between the man's sister who has his dick cut off and the main character was also a really good way of showing teen romance and how it seems the world is against you and how being scared can ruin your chances with someone very easily. The Package was one of the best comedies I feel Netflix have brought out in a while and I am glad I had decided to watch this.

However, I did find that this movie was a bit cheesy and cringy at times and some of the jokes were rather cheap which did rather ruin the film a little but not enough for me to be annoyed at and not watch.

This film would be brilliant for those who are fans of American Pie and are looking for a teenage comedy movie. I was really surprised by this movie and will definitely be watching this again.
My Rating: 4/5

I love how this film although being about football and being something I am not interested in brings it to an enjoyable place for me as well as having the comedy and romance side to keep me fully entertained. Having the film show how the girls team was cut from Viola's school and showing how she just wanted to play and would have played on the b

Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HjGkB_oWTe0 My Review: Having been interested in this movie for a while and it really catching my eye lately especially with it being on Netflix I couldn't resist but to give this a watch. This is something in which I had better expectations for than it gave me and seemed a rather forgettable movie even though it wasn't a bad watch. I liked that The Girl With All The Gifts started with showing how the children were taught and kept in separate rooms however made the audience wonder why they were kept that way when they seemed like normal children. Later discovering that they were zombies and that there was a zombie break all over the w
