Ian Douglas: On the good side, there are lots of good laughs in the dialogue. There is also a scene which takes restroom antics way beyond anything you've ever seen on Ally McBeal. On the bad side, the story is overly long, with too many unnecessary characters and situations which could have been cut. It was kinda weird to hear everyone in the Bahamas speaking French...
Solyda Soum (18): It is fanny to see a man fall in love with his mother-in-law. And I like hearing Catherine Deneuve singing.
