Trivia

During the film, they use the term "château Petrus" to talk about that mythic Bordeaux wine from Pomerol. This is a common mistake unfortunately. Petrus is NOT a chateau so the name of the wine is only "Petrus" NOT "chateau Petrus". See more »

one and a half hours of nothing
25 March 2020 | by thfrtzSee all my reviews

I don't know how this can call itself a movie. There simply is no plot, it's just 90 min of eating, laughing and arguing. This movie is all over the place and seriously nothing happened. The music wasn't really fitting aswell. But I get that this 'movie' is supposed to be really light entertainment and I have to admit that it made me smile tiredly from time to time. Now would I recommend you to watch this 'movie' with less content than an episode of big bang theory? Not really, but if you are over the age of 40, pretty tired and just want some background noise, you might aswell just put it on.
