Less than sophisticated take on extra marital shenanigans
24 December 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This Twenty First Century Czech notion of a raunchy comedy is pretty tacky despite the charm and film craft poured into it.

Following the line of the director's previous ZENY V POKUSENI, lecherous cab driver Polívka involves his struggling restaurateur son-in-law Machácek with sex bomb red head Kerekes. The plot is protracted to a passably agreeable resolution in the posh Max Cafe, with babies all round to follow.

The people and film craft are appealing, with the changing seasonal urban settings particularly striking in subdued colour but the story line is dodgy rather than winning.
