great movie!
29 July 2006 | by topsssssySee all my reviews

I think the movie's great.it's not a masterpiece though, but it's quite entertaining.sometimes European comedies are way better than the American ones, the last often being shallow and childish.In my opinion Gerard Depardieu is one of the best character actors.Which are your top 5 french comedies?Do you think Hollywood could ever measure up to the European cinema?OK,i suppose i'm not the only person who have watched the movie.Post your comments.I would really love to see what you think of it.Take care .Bye. P.S One more thing- I think the title sounds stupid:)i really liked the movie though. Gerard 's face is so funny, yet so sad and capable of showing variety of emotions.
