No need to bash on this movie because it's similar and probably better than what Hollywood throws at us. When I take a look at comedies like The Change-Up or any Steve Carrell movie, I see the same lack of credibility that I find here. And I like these comedies for the most part, so I like this one as well. In my opinion the actors deliver as they should, and I couldn't find any really weak links among the cast. The movie doesn't offer gratuitous nudity, nor does it need to. The dialogues are fluent and at times really funny. Sure, it helps when you speak Polish, but any good translation should offer the same result. Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be a large pool of decent translators out there, and Polish movies really do suffer from that shortcoming. They would be much more popular and known if only the business would make some effort. Try buying a DVD there that includes subtitles, you'll know you're not in for a treat. I give this movie an 8, not because it'll make your day or because it's original, but because it will set you in a good mood. That, and the song used in the movie is addictive as hell ('you love yourself').
