Trivia

When Ethan Renner (Kevin Costner) tries to get the French police to remove the family of immigrant squatters from his little-used Paris apartment, they tell him he must wait until April 13, when winter ends. And when he threatens to do it himself, they tell him he'll get arrested. There is, in fact, a law in France that protects squatters who occupy a residence during winter for more than two days. The owner can't remove them except by filing a lawsuit. See more »

Don't take it seriously!
21 February 2014 | by bodnarhdSee all my reviews

It is a lot like " True Lies" in that a lot of the movie is played for laughs. Amber Heard fits her role very well. Kevin Costner is great as a man who has spent too much time on work and not enough time on his personal life. That is something most of us can relate too. I see people complain about the subplots but they are what make the movie fun. The character actors are great. Not a miss among them. The chase scenes are good with out going over the top. There were only a couple of times where the movie goes to big explosive special effects that take away from the story. The Daughter, played by Hailee Steinfeld, is excellent. Haiee played Mattie Ross in "True Grit". It will be a great loss to the screen if she goes into directing like she wants.

Get some popcorn, sit back and enjoy the fun.
