Great entertainment. Good tension between the characters. Fun and funny.

I had forgotten that I had seen this when I sent for it. However once it started playing, I was delighted that I'd ordered it. I love this movie. Very funny, lovely Paris and great acting. Highly entertaining.

Predictable lightweight entertainment. But charming enough.

full of laughs, remember it has subtitles and you have to watch as well as listen

1.5 by Jgem

A good story line and acting spoiled by very poor subtitling.

I just about turned it off because I didn't realise it had English subtitles but it was an OK movie. Its not one that I would recommend to anyone but it wasn't too bad. Had some funny moments.

3 by Carol

Despite the subtitles this was a good lighthearted movie. The classic tale of the older man with a beautiful mistress who happens to be a supermodel. It shows the lengths that the husband goes to in the hope of avoiding being caught out!

A typical French farce, with games within games. Some great characters but a little lacking in chemistry. Still a good watch!

I enjoyed this light comedy with a rather unique storyline mainly due to the super model who was indeed a super model, kinda the super duper of super models. Her acting was out of this world, the emotion she portrayed was very palatable.
