UPDATE June 2019: They ARE making this into a TV series (or maybe a movie?)! No date given yet, but Nicole Kidman is cast as the spa director. Hot dog!4.5No snack stashes allowed! (But I’m still rounding up)If I went to a health spa and they confiscated my phone and secretly raided my suitcase for snack stashes, I’d think WTF? What did I sign up for?
