The movie starts off with a frenetic pace, but does slow down quite a bit after that opening "montage" (some others are to follow later on). Of course some people might have trouble with a romantic movie trying to make fun of romance in some ways. Title being one of the best indicators of that.
But the leads in this are really good. Of course this being a french movie you should be aware that there will be nudity (in stark contrast to an inevitable? American remake)! If that doesn't bother you, you will get a light movie, that will entertain you. It might have its slow moments here and there and you might not agree entirely how it resolves at the end, but it is more than solid in my book
