Charming, Charming, Charming
23 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Every once in a while a movie sneaks up on you and just really flat out surprises you. For me, this was one of those movies. The french sure have a way with wit and comedy. They were masters at it. This one is at the top of the pile for sure. I guess you can't go back again but if you could, I would request more french comedies just like this one.

My day got a whole lot better watching this. This one is classified as a comedy and rightly so, but ,there needs to be another category for movies like this...Charming. If your not smiling or happy or not feeling better after watching this, you need therapy. They don't make em like this anymore. Absolutely fantastic film.
