What more does a man need?
16 August 2001 | by (China) – See all my reviews

Christopher Lambert's life seems a bit empty. His job with a travel agency in a mall and a succession of meaningless sexual trysts are unsatisfying and quite boring. In search of a thrill he even begins driving his motorcycle with wild abandon. Nothing seems to help until...

Until Christopher finds the one thing that every man needs: complete and utter devotion and acceptance from a woman who will never speak any words that are unwelcome.

It's a silly plot for a funny, offbeat movie, the kind you should watch with a lover for the most enjoyment. If you see it alone, it will just seem stupid, but with your girlfriend or boyfriend you'll have a great time with it.
