4 June 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I saw this on a plane from Germany this year. It was titled "Why men don't listen and women can't parallel park." A good movie, both funny and scarily poignant. If you get a chance, watch it. A combination mocumentry and situational comedy, with some good performances. If you liked "Amelie" this is worth a shot. An exaggeration of real life, but I guarantee these characters will remind you of someone you know. Subtitled, obviously. So if you are one of those people who thinks all the best movies, actors and directors speak English, skip it and put in another inane Ben Stiller or Adam Sandler movie. I look forward to it coming out on DVD and will be purchasing it.
