Director and co-writer Philippe Le Guay deploys a gift for wry observation with a deftly understated approach that defuses the danger of triteness and makes the film a satisfying experience.

Warm and winning, it is a refreshingly sympathetic portrait of a late-middle-aged bourgeoisie man, quite a rarity in contemporary cinema.

Seeing this gentle, amiable film is a bit like spending a couple of hours at a dinner party with many charming guests. You will leave refreshed, in a good mood and with a craving for paella.

All in all-if all is meant moderately-the story leaves an agreeable aftertaste, which lingers longer than we expected.

Beautifully filmed, well acted and a topical reminder that success isn't about how much money you have, but how you live - and boil your eggs.

Luchini almost rescues it from its own complacency, but the script is equal parts blocked toilets and soft-boiled eggs.

Que pasa? Rien d'importance.

The film sidesteps all complexities and leaves us with a closing shot that should come with a bucket.
July 4, 2012
Enjoyable, frequently funny French comedy with likeable characters and a strong central premise, though the script wobbles in the final act and the conclusion fails to convince.

Enjoyably satirical and occasionally insightful, it's betrayed by some lazy stereotyping.
