Pretty good... A 'Chick Flick' Manly Men Might Enjoy.
on 23 September 2014
Pretty good (3.5 stars if I could). Worth a watch, but not exceptional. The sort of film a guy who considers himself a bit of a dude, would probably label as a chick flick but end up enjoying. Apart from the usual things that call people to watch films like an interesting story, or beautiful cinematography, great acting etc, I really need to like (or detest) characters to be invested in a film to watch it all the way through. I did watch it all the way through and loved the male leads character (and the baby) and found it interesting, but not enough to give it a 4. I think it was the writing and direction... Also my lack of points is probably a personal thing as a woman of not liking female lead's character: you know the current style of mainly male screenplay writers making female lead who is wholly unlikable and a bit of a cow with no remarkable qualities, that still manages to get the guy to fall head over heals in love with her). In general although light and fun, the film has a anti-woman tone about it - don't want to go as far as saying misogynistic, but all the female characters are selfish, whorish, loutish, vapid and/or vain. Some women who consider themselves feminists may disagree with me and see it as refreshing, but I found it a little displeasing... Still worth a watch and **one of the better French comedies currently included free on Amazon Prime.
