This isn't as bad as I was expecting and it certainly works thanks to Milan's and Matthias' chemistry. Unfortunately, while the film does have a decent, but cheesy, story about Henri realizing that love isn't a bad thing or something that only happens in fairy tales, it is still a fairly predictable and safe attempt at this story. Much like What A Man, another film by Matthias Schweighofer, it works because of due to Matthias' likability, even when his character is a person who, essentially, breaks up couples. Milan Peschel is also likable, but his character was designed to be that way and to give Matthias something weird and crazy to play off of. The film also doubles as a bromance and while it is a little goofy and over-the-top, the leads' chemistry is obvious and it makes the film a little better to watch. I don't really have much to say, this is a German romantic comedy that doesn't really offer anything different than what we're used to in this side of the world, but the final product is decent at best. It has its moments, but it's far too predictable and sugary for my tastes. It's an easy film to watch though, it doesn't require much brainpower to understand what's going on. So if that's what you're looking for, then this is a great film for you. I'm looking for a little more out of the romantic comedies I watch though, so this is just an average movie at best.
