21 February 2007 | by (Estonia) – See all my reviews

The film follows quite typical plot-line, Pierre Richard playing quite clumsy guy who always gets into trouble and all women in this flick fall in love with him. And of course full of small clichés from romance & musical movies here and there that the director has brought forward making them ridiculous. The citations from film noir genre make the movie interesting to watch on the other hand - the country-house sequel and the night after marrying. The genre was not abused and stomp on as Carl Reiner's and Steve Martin's collaboration "Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid" did, pissing on itself and on film noir.

On side of acting, the part suits very well for Pierre Richard. His character, Matthias/Matthieu gets clearly schizophrenic, one could say even clinically (one of the best lines of the movie: "Oh dear, i just cheated on myself!") And of course, he even becomes jealous on himself. The twin sisters, played by Camilla and Carey More surprisingly don't ruin the movie (as bringing twins in usually effects). They look nice and stay in their role - to ask more would be crime.

One thing bugs me though - when Liz sends Matthias to airport, whom is she calling, saying: "This one will do just fine." (or something like that.)
