Storyline

This is an important day for Marc Chanois, an insurance advisor heading toward middle age: it's his fiancée Sabine's birthday, her parents arrive in Paris and Marc will meet them for dinner to announce the engagement (her father can't stand him), he's bought Sabine a Spitfire, and his most important client is to sign a policy. But, as the day wears on, he's vexed by an incompetent secretary, the unexpected return of a girlfriend he hasn't seen in five years, squatters who use his office at night, the jealous former lover of a flight attendant who lives in the building, and his boss's unexpected return from a Swiss clinic. Will he reach Sabine in one piece? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

funny little film
23 April 2005 | by (istanbul) – See all my reviews

This is a funny little French film which delivers just what it promises: 90 minutes of entertainment. There are some moments that will make you laugh aloud, and many that'll keep a smile on your face. The plot is simple, and one that's been done a lot lately: What would happen if everything went wrong, in just one day? It's not the funniest picture out there, but it's a refreshing one after the dozens of moronic Hollywood comedies. It puts a nice European touch of style. The leads are very good, story simple, and the jokes are funny.

Contains a few scenes of nudity (not sex) and some language, but nothing extreme. Anyway, watch at your own risk with your kids.
