Vive les Femmes can best be described as a French sex comedy- not unlike one of those rather dowdy Brit sex comedies of the 1970s in tone (although better made). It is more "Can you Keep it Up for Week" than Benny Hill or "Carry on Garcon".
The film is notable more for the considerable nudity than for the cracking humour. Various dodgy French blokes try to get their legs over on holiday- but thankfully we get to see their targets in the buff on several occasions. The French do incidental nudity so much better than Hollywood- probably because the women look real from the size of chests to the thickness of their thatch. Anyway- they are uber-cute (or at least Catherine Leprince is).
For that reason alone this movie is worth seeing- if you want belly laughs I'd probably stick with Woody Allen.
