Watcheable comedy, typical French Humour
20 May 2002 | by (Ile-de-France / Paris Region, France) – See all my reviews

A fairly watchable comedy, mainly designed I think for French audiences and certainly with no international ambitions. Basically about relations between two girls living together, one of whom is rather plump ( Balasko ) and various male characters. It's quite entertaining but not a model of finesse. Anyway, I quite enjoyed it. Many of the actors are well-known figures of comedy in France today.
