Storyline

Paolo (Vincenzo Amato), an Italian who drives a Paris tour bus, has just proposed to his true love, the German stewardess, Greta (Nora Tschirner), when the young French beauty, Cécile (Louise Monot) pulls up beside his bus on her bicycle - and, in short order, Paolo, following some very bad advice from his friend, Derek (Paddy Considine), finds himself with a German fiancée, a French "wife", two Australian children who call him "Papa", and his life upside-down.

Goofs

When the street person is cleaning the right hand tour bus window when it's stopped at the light, the window is almost completely covered in washing fluid every time you see it from the inside looking out, even though he has squeegee'd it several times. The shots from the outside are correct, with the solution going away as the guy squeegees the window. See more »

Quotes

Francois: Italian men think that 'Fidelity' is the name of the woman who lives across the hall.

Predictable and Lightweight but Neither Awful or Super
13 July 2014 | by film_ophileSee all my reviews

Very much like a Hollywood RomCom (formulaic, predictable, fluffy romantic comedy)some of the other IMDb reviewers thought it was awful and some thought it super duper. For me, it was neither extreme. The lead actor carried his part well and the chemistry was fun and believable between him and his German girlfriend. After the bus incident, you could pretty much write the story yourself, but it was still enjoyable enough to watch it all develop (though I did consider fast-forwarding it in a few places.) The screenplay had a few very good lines, but they're gone from memory as I know the film will be by tomorrow.
