Enjoyable romp between male characters who just want to be useful to their families.
31 December 2013 | by See all my reviews

An entertaining enough movie. Wasn't slow. Plenty of character interaction. The characters who interacted are men, which makes this not really a chick flick. Men are likely to enjoy the story as much as women. I'm trying to write this review for the sake of parents, or sensitive people who wonder if this is a filthy foreign film? In the US we have parental guidance ratings, but we rely on online reviews to decide if kids should see it. In this film I do recall about 25% of the conversations between family members were intense/somewhat angry or containing a dirty word. Not much in the way of nudity ... but there was one scene in the hospital of married people attempting to have marital relations. That scene would probably bump the rating in the US from PG-13 to R. Other than that, a teenager would likely be OK watching it. The themes between characters are adult, and probably not terribly entertaining to younger folk. In Summary, worth watching.
