French romantic comedy - set across France, Africa and Russia - with Diane Kruger (Inglourious Basterds) and Danny Boon (Welcome to the Sticks), from the director 2010 hit Heartbreaker.

Has a curse conceit that audiences will have to buy into, though here screenwriters niftily present their yarn as a potentially tall tale told at a dinner party.

Pleasantly decent picture has a clipped, farcical energy.

Uneven follow-up to Heartbreaker offers a similar pitch but significantly less laughs.
