Why did I watch this movie?
10 July 2000 | by netrom-2See all my reviews

If you are a woman in a suppressed relationship, where you are the one being suppressed, then you might enjoy this movie. But I doubt it. The two chauvinistic males were way too exaggerated, even for a comedy. Or maybe it was just bad acting. The movie was not very funny. I did smile a couple of times. I even laughed a couple of times, during the commercial breaks. Maybe if you are an english tourist who often travels in france, then you might find it funny. I didn't. The plot itself was okay, and I think it might have gone quite okay as a drama. Oh, and why did I watch it? Because IMDbs users gave it a rating of 7.1. Please watch this movie an rate it as it deserves.
