I went to see this film with three friends as we're all studying French, and thought it would be a fun little excursion. I'm glad I agreed to go, because it was certainly an evening well spent. There were some truly great one-liners, but the comedy didn't stop there - the situations that the characters found themselves in, although funny, were not unbelievable, and that made it all the more amusing. The characters were very well fleshed out, a nice contrast to many of the films nowadays in which the characters are bare bones, and one really empathised with each character. This film will make you laugh, think, and even cry a little - and it definitely improved my French!
