This movie has scenes that are ironically and sarcastically funny and sad at the same time. I personally like it very much but it can be offensive for some people. Super sarcastic some of the things Jasmine said like talking about doing charity work because “wealth brings some obligations” when she knows her husband is a crook 🙂 Funny!
