A by-the-numbers romantic comedy.

With its stock characters and low-expectation high jinks, the German import "What a Man" could have been fabricated on the Hollywood rom-com assembly line.

The plot is predictable, as complications line up like jets awaiting takeoff. Even the camera work is predictable ...

It may hit all-too-familiar notes, but its sureness of tone makes Mr. Schweighöfer a talent to watch.

Notwithstanding its slavish adherence to familiar genre conventions, the film nonetheless makes for reasonably fun viewing, thanks to its off-kilter humor and the chemistry exhibited by Scheweighofer and Kekilli.

Mostly harmless but also irksome in its bland simplicity ...

An unlikely and generally winning if utterly formulaic blend of male fretfulness and romantic bloom rooted in friendship... but in German!

A smart, funny, sweet and well-acted romantic comedy.
