Yeah, liked this one. Sweet movie. The middle aged French guys always get the young women, lucky them! I think I'm in the wrong country. Not sure the chemistry in this one quite worked but it was a great story with the usual interesting French characters and quirky, off beat bits. Very enjoyable.
" It was my ABBA period, or was it The Cure? "
Hysterical, hilarious - I haven't laughed quite like that for a while. Chabat and Gainsbourg are an awesome pairing. Loved it instantly.
Just loved this little surprise. Hysterically funny scenes interspersed with understated romance. So many older guys attracting women so much younger than themselves suggests an older male hand behind this, living out a fantasy. Subtitles? What subtitles? Film was too entertaining to notice.
This is funny with an interfering family and the depths he goes to make them happy only to fall in love himself. It is good he finally stands up to them to make his own life. Reminds me of the tv series now, pls find my son a wife. lol
really enjoyed, funny but a bit of an edge of drama
I should have read review first, as I too didnt realise this movie was in subtitles
We do n ot like foreign language movies. We did not realise that this m ovie was a sub-title movei. Do not watch it unless you like reading sub-title while watching the movie.
Good feel good movie. Quirky and fun. Three and a half stars
I really enjoyed this. It's lighthearted with some funny lines.
Hey, what does a Frenchman have to do to to be attractive? Alain Chabat is an accomplished comedian and actor and comes across as a very likeable character one can sympathise with. The story is simple but has enough twists to keep you laughing and worrying in turns. Being French, it's not in-your-face all the way - a nice Gallic film with good English sub-titling; good entertainment.
One of the funniest films I have seen in a long time. Very entertaining and enjoyable.
Enjoyable and entertaining movie, if a little unrealistic. The ending was predictable. Good French comedy
Enjoyed this one - quick french wit and interesting characters and play amongst each other and their lives. So nice to be stimulated and entertained - the Europeans are so beyind the Yanks .
Fairly tame story "with a french twist". Only son of big family who is happy with his single life is nagged into getting married by his mother and 5 sisters. He concocts his own "wife" with a predictible outcome. Some humour but not enough for me. He is not an appealing looking guy - why would a young attractive girl fall for him. They could have done the same story more successful with 2 people the same age!
Not what I was expecting- not as quirky as I thought it would be but very funny- definately worth checking out!!
