A waste of time
14 September 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Intrigued by Valerie Lemercier's presence and by the humorous sounding title, I went and saw this film. I bitterly regret my choice. This movie is terribly boring. It's hard to tell what the authors were aiming for. Is it supposed to be an example of absurd humour? Is it an exercise in intellectual masturbation? It seems the authors themselves did not know where they were going with it. It is, put simply, a bad movie.

The basic premise sounded promising, but The characters and the story are not interesting. This man, who is caught between his wife and lover, loses a grand-mother he has not seen in years and must organise her funeral. It could have been an interesting drama, a story of growth and learning for the main character, but it goes absolutely nowhere. And the multiple times text messages are shown to the viewer by taking up the whole screen in garish colours is just annoying.

Steer clear of this movie.
