From the wince-inducing title onwards, the script is laughably bad, especially when it attempts seriousnes.

Buildings and their interiors fare a lot better in this sumptuously lensed and set-designed film. That's because they don't have to talk or act.

The comedic touches are well wrought, but there's a lot of plodding, earnest discussion about Palestine and Israel, when the focus should be on the Lebanese. Sorry -- the lesbians.

The film is too schematic by half and overflows with one-dimensional characters.
