3.0 out of 5 stars Male chaivinism, 13 July 2014
You will not live here an unforgettable movie experience, only a well crafted gaudy piece of entertainment leaning on two well-known professional actors. The script itself is flimsy and the jokes not really unexpected, but all in all you will spend a pleasant moment in company of these wedding crashers whose behavior reminds the one of not very mature teenagers.
I would recommend it if you definitely have a gap in your timetable to fill.

You will meet a bunch of old friends in this classical Altman satire: Kim Basinger as an intrepid TV-anchor; Marcello Mastroiani as petty thief - Jean-Paul Gaultier as himself and Forest Whitaker as a media mogul, just to name a few.

I chose this flick - what else - for its cover. Thought I might get some juicy girlie things. I was utterly disappointed. I could not find a movie in this inane and disparate collection of seemingly not interconnected shots. The story does'nt take off because there is no story. There is not a single erotic scene, because French directors do not know what erotic means.
It's flat, tepid, utterly devoid of the slightest hint to humor (you will hear occasionally some witty remarks, but wit does'nt make up for the lack of humor).
Belive me: the cover is the best thing about this cinematographic shipwreck. And guess what ?
