Double the rating field using F .

I don't know where am I going wrong here!

products/emergency.py
from django.db.models import F

from .models import Review

def double_ratings():
    reviews = Review.objects.all()
    reviews.update(rating = F('rating') * 2)
    reviews.save()

You do not need to save the objects after an update so the 'reviews' variable is unnecessary.

Just use:

def double_ratings():
    Review.objects.update(rating=F('rating')*2)

I think your code will work and the challenge doesn't like it but I'm not sure

Promoting to answer. The code will work if Anusha's import statement is used. It differs from the initial import provided by the challenge. Anusha's allows referencing Review directly and not needed to use models.Review.
