Monotony meets Comedy
25 August 2009 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Probably one of the worst films I have ever seen. The script is incredibly tedious and heavy handed where characters speak in as natural and unrehearsed a manner as a priest on Christmas eve. In fact the preposterous and cumbersome writing goes to such an extreme that it often had the audience brimming with fits of laughter. The cast, many who have excelled in other features, struggle and fail to deliver their lines or characters with any level of veracity SAVE for the actress who plays Mathilde. Perhaps it is because her role is such a caricature that her over the top portrayal does not jar. The inclusion of Liam (by Roy Dupuis) sends this movie in the absolute stratospheres of divine comedy. How on earth he selected this role let alone played it with a straight face boggles the mind. In conclusion the only reason this movie does not deserve the lowest of scores is twofold: 1 as a lesson in how NOT to mold characters and 2 for its beautifully unintentional hilarity.
