Definitely a typical "trying to save the relationship" kind of rom-com but with the Turkish twists of pretty seaside cinematography and an opening scene of Iskender kebab that starts off the story.
Biggest disappointment would be some green screen moments amongst the stunning shots of Fethiye, but they don't ruin it all that much. Plenty of scenes will have your jaw dropping, your eyes opened, and wanting to paraglide above the Aegean Sea or cruise through those mountain roads at some point in your life with a sexy Turkish lover.
Apart from the setting, Murat delivers more physical comedy and facial expressions in this one, but the supporting characters made this movie a lot better! Gonca's rambling, quirky lines and inventive devising of Okan's demise were sometimes too much to keep up with in the subtitles but she had me laughing the most. She only got better with Bülent's ax-wielding antics towards the end. A little over the top and sadistic, but it was some of the best comical violence I've seen so far in a Turkish comedy.
It's just a bright, silly comedy that utilizes good music in the right spots, a few laughs and showcases one of the bluest, prettiest spots of the Turkish Riviera that a non-Turkish audience should absolutely appreciate.
