Bowling ... for babies
20 October 2013 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

A nice little french comedy film about a hospital and its employees. All of them being female (which could be considered a bit off, especially because male nurses are a reality for a long time now), which is fine by me. They are all very into their roles and its a nice touch to see an all female ensemble in a comedy like this.

The story is pretty straight forward and the conflicts are very easy to predict. Still the movie is fun and entertaining enough to watch once. Character interaction and dialog is more than decent enough. If you like your comedies to be light and easy to digest you will probably add another point to my initial vote.
