A Perfect Plan Review


OK

The French don't always get the balance right in their farcical romantic comedies, but they usually win us over with goofy charm. Alas, the plan never quite comes together this time. A combination of wildly improbable plotting and odd casting choices makes everything feel so contrived that we end up not caring what will happen. Although it's impossible not to smile.

In Paris, Isabelle (Diane Kruger) has finally decided to marry her handsome fellow dentist Pierre (Robert Plagnol). But there's a problem: in her family, the first marriages never work out. So her sister Coco (Alice Pol) concocts a plan that Isabelle will fly to Copenhagen to marry and divorce in an hour, so Pierre becomes the more successful husband No 2. On the flight to Denmark, she meets loutish travel writer Jean-Yves (Dany Boon), and when her plans go awry she follows him to Nairobi, intending to trick him into a quickie wedding there. But of course, nothing goes as planned, and now Isabelle needs to track down Jean-Yves in Moscow to sort out the mess.

It's impossible to believe anything that happens in this film, as Isabelle somehow does all this globe-hopping without arousing Pierre's suspicion or jeopardising their successful dental practice. Even more ridiculous are adventures she has face-to-face with a lion in the Serengeti or drunkenly dancing in a Russian nightclub. But these things might not be a problem if Isabelle and Jean-Yves weren't such a mismatched pair.

Safe Men Review


Very Good
See what Sam Rockwell and Steve Zahn looked like before they both let their hair go insane. This very little-known (and just plain little) indie comedy is extremely witty and often perverse. Even without the humor, the film is worth seeking out to see all the other roles by up-and-comers (at least at the time), including Paul Giamatti and Mark Ruffalo. The nutty premise involves two wannabe singers (Rockwell and Zahn) who are mistaken for safecrackers and threatened into doing a series of safecracking jobs. Not a single serious moment ensues. Excellent.
