A well done Julie Delpy comedy, very witty and charming without going overboard.
13 March 2016 | by subxerogravitySee all my reviews

I've seen Lolo before. A young man raised by a single mother does not like it when eligible suitors comes sniffing around his MILF. So when a IT tech becomes his mother's love interest, Lolo stops at nothing to break these two apart.

The french version of this story starts out as just a young man talking crap to convince his mom that this man is not right for her. Then it escalates to the extreme when Lolo makes The IT tech his victim. That's were the comedy comes it as well.

It's not different from an American comedy in how it escalates, except that the this french film realizes it does not need to got too over the top with the comedy to be laugh out loud funny.

If you ever seen such movie as Cyrus or Mr. Woodcock than you'll like this movie. It's the same style of comedy.

One exception is the focus on the perspective of Julie Delpy's character, Violette, a 40 year old woman who still in the dating game looking for love. I seen the movie done from Lolo's perspective as the selfish son who will do anything to keep the cord attached to his mother, and I've seen it from Jean-René's perceptive as a man dating a woman too good to be true, and then discovers she got some baggage she loves too much too see as baggage. Violette's view does bring some freshness to the movie.

It was a subtle comedy, at least by American standards, but it is very effective.
