It's French and that shows, almost un-watchable, did they have a script?
17 November 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a slow, boring, depressing mess. I wonder if they had a script because lots of scenes look improvised. Winger's boyfriend is such a cad in other works that it is hard to pull for him here, playing a cad once again. It has the confusing French ending. I actually had a friend recommend this to me by saying, "we saw it in a theater with one other couple and when it was over, we all just said 'what the heck'"?! And yep -- that's the take-away. I would not recommend this movie. It is a mess with no moral compass and no highlights. We laughed once in 90 minutes at this "comedy". SKIP IT
