Hello Darling - External Reviews

wogma rating: Watch if you have nothing better to do (?)
quick review:

Hello Darling aims to take a decent premise and juice the sense out of it. It looks like it succeeds, even beyond the imagination of the makers. I understand drop in production values because of low budgets, but making fools out of decent actors is inexcusable.
