An unhappily married housewife (Victoria Abril) falls for a lesbian drifter (director Josiane Balasko) at the same time she learns of her husband's serial infidelities ... so she asks the lesbian to move in with them. Clearly intended as a satire, but none of the characters are recognizable as real people, which really hurts any satirical force this might have had.

While it's not a hilarious movie, it was still fun and definitely entertaining throughout. Plus, things are helped by great performances by Abril and Balasko. Despite a few too many slow spots, this is still a good film that is worth your time

The twist falls short, but it is very French.

mostly it was hilarious, but some parts toward the end you dunno whether to laugh or hurl. very 'cuckoo', this one.
the cheating husband and the actor who played his clueless friend were good.
definitely a twist at the end alright.

Full of stereotypes but funny nonetheless.

Moyen . J'ai tenu au début , mais plus le film suit son cours , plus je me décroche de l'histoire . Pourtant l'intrigue est pas trop mal : bien huilé , les histoires d'infidélité suivent bien , mais elles prennent toute la place et laisse l'humour derrière . Car avec Alain Chabat ou Josiane Balasko , on s'attend à un humour lourd , mais là c'est sûr , l'humour des Nuls n ' y est pas . C'est dommage , avec Alain Chabat on peut trouver mieux .
Plus Victoria Abril , ce trio est performant , mais un peu statique : une femme qui pleure tout le temps , une fillme qui joue le stéréotype de la lesbienne et l'homme qui n'arrive pas à se suivre lui-même . C'est pas romantique , normal , mais ce n'est pas non plus drôle , à part quelques fois . Mais , j'ai comme ce goût d'inachevé pour une histoire ambitieuse.

Loved this movie!! A Wife who has it all - a husband and a lesbian lover. All under one roof! I loved how the director took this story and made it entertaining. Not sleezy but realistic. You find yourself rooting for the wife and the love that has blossomed between her the woman that just happens upon her doorstep. If you love French film - see this! If you love a romantic movie - see this! If you love a nice naked ass - See this! Just see this film already!!! :)

Filmed in the gorgeous south of France, this saucy French battle of the sexes comedy puts the sleazy, philandering husband at the receiving end for a change... with a hilarious twist!

Une comdie franaise plutt bien matrise avec une brochette d'acteurs trs talentueux. Quelques moments plutt sexy viennent mettre du piquant l'histoire. Pas trop mal, somme toute.
