This movie is about of a couple of men, a musician engaged to a career woman and her retired father, who break free from their wet-blanket women for a little while to live as they choose, but of course reveal themselves as man-children in need of adult supervision, and come to realize that they have no other options in life, and that they must turn back before it's too late. This realization is softened by an unrealistic fantasy ending. Other than this vapid chick-flick plot, the movie is fairly amusing. It works best when it sticks to sly "French humor" rather than goofy characters or, God forbid, slapstick, though I guess those are pretty French too. Ahmadinejad is the butt of several jokes, and that kind of nasty political ridicule has sadly become rare in movies. It's an OK movie for a few laughs, as long as you don't take it seriously.
