When French tycoon Pierre Levasseur is spied with his supermodel mistress Elena, the pictures end up on the front page of a Paris daily. Telling his powerful wife Christine that there must have been a mistake, he declares Elena was actually with the other fellow in the photo. Trying to keep one step ahead of his dubious wife, Pierre engineers it so a naive car-park valet, François Pignon, appears to be Elena's boyfriend, moving her into his flat and his life. As Pierre's web of deceit widens, so do the possibilities of discovery and with them disaster after hilarious disaster.

EXCELLENT BELIEVABLE STORY.
INTERESTING GAMES PLAYED BY TWO COUPLES, A LAWYER AND PRIVATE DETECTIVES ON BOTH SIDES. ENGLISH SUBTITLES WERE IN LARGE YELLOW FONTS. WAS GOOD TO SEE A MOVIE WITH NO VIOLENCE. DASHBOARD IS A GREAT FEATURE TO LEARN ABOUT MOVIES PREVIEWED BY OTHERS. THANK YOU JCL IN KS.

It is a well made French comedy. Daniel Auteuil and Kristin Scot-Thomas are fantastic. The storyline is entertaining, the end is left open for a viewer to have something to think about. The comedy has wit, it's funny, and well paced.
Daniel Auteuil was unbelievable in Girl on the Bridge (Vanessa Paradis).

This is a lightweight, mindless comedy and a waste of the talents of Daniel Auteuil and Kristin Scott-Thomas. The storyline of a parking attendant drawn into a cover-up for a billionaire's extra-marital romance with a super model seemed artificial and unconvincing with a tacked on ending that seemed to say the writers didn't really know how to end it all.

Entertaining and fun movie. The expressions on the faces of François' work colleagues when supermodels approach him are priceless. Daniel Auteuil does a fine job as the sleazy billionaire who is cheating on his wife.

A dumb french bedroom farce with wooden charactors

It is a simple story, but well done. You feel sorry for the hero who can't win his girl, but lucks out as he is paired with a super model to satisfy the wife of a two timing business man. It ends poetically. The French actors are mostly very good. A pleasant surprise was Kristen Scott Thomas who has done a number of French movies, both comedies and dramas.

I ENJOYED THE MOVIE, BUT THE ENDING LEFT ME HANGING, EVEN ALTHOUGH THE BAD GUY GOT HIS. THE SUPERMODEL, IT SEEMS, GOT RIPPED OFF. THEY BLEW THE ENDING WHICH RUINED IT FOR ME.
