not my usual kind of film, but Fiona and Dom movies make me smile. L'iceberg and Rumba are much in the same vein.

This movie is not for everyone.
If you appreciate simple effect and a simple story you may enjoy this film.

I think it was well made, fresh and the baby enjoyed acting this movie...

Life takes a drastic turn for the surreal when Dom, a meek rubbery-faced hotel clerk, comes face to face with Fiona, a wacky woman claiming to be a real live fairy. Not only does she grant him 2 wishes (with a third one pending) but before the week is out he’ll break into an asylum, get chased by police and father a child after what has to be the shortest gestation period in history. Chockablock with all the usual eccentrics, stale pratfalls and maddeningly repetitive visual gags (will Dom ever get to eat that gosh darn sandwich hahaha!!) this is the type of insipid drivel that apologetic critics love to tout as “Gallic humour”. What few laughs exist are confined to the first ten minutes, after that it just becomes increasingly cringeworthy. I’ve seen more sophisticated comedy coming from The Three Stooges.

If you like whimsical French comedies then it doesn't get much more whimsical than this.
