The Strike is Laugh out Loud!
21 December 2016 | by mindycaraSee all my reviews

This is a great rental to enjoy on a cold winters day...super fun with a great meaning! Erin Fogel was a highlight. I'm a New Yorker and so it was fun to see all the sights around the city. I especially enjoyed the way the movie weaved a lot of story lines together and wrapped it up at the end. Had a very poignant ending, which I won't spoil. Heartwarming characters that you rooted for even through all their mishaps. And I enjoyed the way it was shot, like you were part of the scene. I look forward to seeing these actors on their next adventures (fun to see pichot back on the screen). It's just a sweet and lighthearted film that packs a surprising punch of poignant. Highly recommend!
