Jocelyn (Franck Dubosc), a habitual liar, pretends to be in a wheelchair as part of a scheme to seduce a beautiful woman… but then he meets her sister (Alexandra Lamy) who is in fact a paraplegic. Just looking at the plot summary for this romantic comedy may make you cringe, and the rest of the movie won’t make you feel better. Apart from being hopelessly formulaic and predictable (apart from a twist that makes the romance even less believable), the film suffers from an unlikable main character. Roll away from it.
