Don’t Make Me Go Review – What Works
John Cho shines in this emotional road trip drama with Mia Isaac. Cho is the dad every teenager wishes they could have, they just maybe don’t know it. Caring, good dad jokes, firm, and a heart of gold as a dad, Cho is entirely relatable as a parent. Isaac portrays the snarky, surly teen who is dying to rebel yet stay in her dad’s good graces all at the same time while still trying to discover who she is.
The angst and turmoil between Cho and Isaac is so raw and the twists will leave you breathless. Grab your tissues and a loved one and settle in for a ride.
