A light, fluffy French romantic-comedy with a good plot driving a perfect chick flick that delivers a lovely Monte Carlo location, beautiful people and lots of chic style. Don’t take it seriously, just enjoy it.
Alex (Duris), his sister and her husband (Ferrier and Damiens) run an odd business, they hire themselves out to break up relationships.
Hired by a rich father to wreck the romance and approaching wedding of his beautiful daughter, Juliette (Paradis), and wealthy Englishman, Jonathan (Lincoln), Alex swings into action as the seducer out to show his target that her great love might not be as perfect as she thinks.
But Juliette does think Jonathan is perfect, which he just about is, and she’s not buying Alex’s sudden interest and line of patter … or will she eventually crumble?
With time running out before the big day, will Alex succeed?
It’s the sort of film that floats along without asking more from its audience than they go with the flow. You couldn’t resist.
Star Rating: 4/5
