French actress/writer/director Julie Delpy ("Before Sunset") fails miserably with this Paris-set romantic farce where American girly-man Jack (Adam Goldberg) learns to loathe his slutty bipolar girlfriend Marion (Delpy).
All in all, Delpy has a good time mocking national identities and gender issues, but she doesn't make a case for Marion and Jack to stay together. If she doesn't care about them as a couple, why should we?
There are some great moments of cross-cultural transference and culture clash captured by Delpy's dynamic camera, which organically flows between the conversations and social mishaps of her characters.
