    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    Aussie singer Natalie Imbruglia gets to play the babe, nothing more, but she does that brightly. The rest of the movie is a dim bulb. show more

    Edward Guthmann San Francisco Chronicle

    By playing the boob so brilliantly, Atkinson allows us the catharsis of recognizing our own incompetencies and lack of poise. show more

    The jokes often are corny or labored, and the story is predictable. However, Atkinson raises the movie to the level of good fun by the force of his outrageous persona and skill at physical comedy. show more

    Despite its contemporary-sounding anti-French cracks, could easily have been made 20 years ago. show more
