An average movie

I wasn't expecting much from this flick but since my wife really likes this kind of Dutch romantic-comedies, I thought we might as well watch it together. Well, even though it was slightly better than the other movies in this genre, I still didn't care much for the damned thing, I'm afraid. To be honest, I have to admit that it actually had some potential. In my opinion, if they would have chosen a darker and more realistic approach, it could have been actually even pretty good. Indeed, there was something interesting about this womaniser losing his father who was also apparently a womanizer himself. Instead of following the traditional formula, they could have made this character going through a depressing mourning phase rethinking his way of life in the process. Unfortunately, this aspect was actually barely developed and, instead, they came up with some bet which is such a really old boring rom-com gimmick. Concerning Jennifer Hoffman, she must be one of the loveliest Dutch actresses nowadays and she was just really charming here but she wasn't helped with such a generic and rather tedious story. Anyway, to conclude, even if I have seen worse, it was still rather weak and I don't think it is really worth a look, except maybe if you are a die-hard fan of the genre.
