Though the key idea could have been used in an interesting way, in fact nothing about this film is interesting beyond the first ten minutes. Such smiles as there might be towards the beginning are already tempered by annoying slapstick and tedious sexual humour. From the appearance of Maria de Medeiros in the 1998 part of the film onwards, cheap sentiment is added to the film's other sins, building up to a nonsensical and unwatchably cheesy finale.
Talented comedy actors such as Lhermitte and Semoun are apparently present just to fill out the cast list. They serve no purpose in the plot and are not given the opportunity to be funny.
