Lando Buzzanca plays a man desperate to father a male heir. However, his wife (Roseanne Podesta) is apparently barren. They decide to use a surrogate mother, which, since this was in the days before artificial insemination, means Buzzanca will have to impregnate the surrogate the "old-fashioned" way. After a mishap involving a VERY unattractive but fertile widow, Buzzanca sets his sights on young girl (Gloria Guida) at an orphanage for unwed mothers (who has already given an illegitimate child up for adoption). They hire her as a maid, but she is under the impression they're going to adopt her, leading to some quasi-incestual misunderstandings...

Patrick C (fr) wrote: Quite possibly one of the worst films EVER made. Horrible effects, TERRIBLE acting, and a script that is barely even a script. If one must watch this I suggest doing it with friends who have a sense of humor as it is like shooting fish in a barrel. I would also like to nominate the character Megumi as runner up to JarJar Binks as most annoying movie character of all time.

Stuart K (es) wrote: Written and directed by Pierre Salvadori (After You... (2003) and Beautiful Lies (2010)), this is an amusing French romantic comedy inspired by classic romance films like City Lights (1931) and Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961). It's a comedy of misunderstandings, a farce if you will, but one which is old fashioned at heart, like those old fashioned European travelogue capers, light, fluffy, bubbly and fun. On the French Riviera, Jean (Gad Elmaleh) is a waiter at a posh hotel, who meets gold digger Irne (Audrey Tautou) in a hotel suite. Irne mistakes Jean to be a wealthy man, and they spend the night together, a year passes and Jean and Irne's paths cross again, this time Irne is engaged to Jacques (Vernon Dobtcheff), Jean and Irne rekindle, Jacques leaves Irne when he finds out, but Jean finds out that Irne's lifestyle comes at a price, a hefty one which leaves him penniless. However, Jean meets wealthy widow Madeleine (Marie-Christine Adam), and Irne teaches Jean how to master the art of gold digging and get away with it. It's a silly film with some good laughs along the way, Elmaleh and Tautou spark well off one another, and it's a fluffy film which could have been made 40-50 years ago and still worked. The film has a lot of bling on display, yet it has heart and charm too.
Grant S (us) wrote: An attempt to combine the plot and style of Quentin Tarantino and Guy Ritchie, which fails miserably. The plot is threadbare, the cinematography all over the place, the direction aimless. The acting, but for Gabriel Byrne, is rather woeful. Quite amazing when you consider the cast - Val Kilmer, Anthony LaPaglia, Joanne Whalley, Vinnie Jones.Very very bad. Avoid.

Russell G (au) wrote: Following Goldfinger in the 007 series is not an easy task, but Thunderball is up for it. The Spetre terrorist organization reemerges by hijacking nuclear missiles, and it is up to James Bond to save the world. It understands the value of keeping the plot simple and letting the action, location, and visuals of the adventure be the focus. This could be the most imaginative of the entire Bond series. It features jetpacks, submarines, bomb-detecting watches, and villains that disguise themselves with plastic surgery. It is a bold, expensive, beautiful, and fantastic; everything a Bond movie should be. A mid-60s aesthetic along with the underwater scuba diving and exotic and festive Bahamas beach setting gives this an amazing sense of style. Terence Young deserves a great deal of credit in making this an icon of its time. The inspired undersea action scenes make this a significant technical achievement alone. Savor Sean Connery's performance; this is the last movie James Bond where he is fully engaged and his highest form. He has his trademark style, charm, humor and grit in his prime. Aldolfo Celi makes for a strong villain and his beautiful but deadly henchwoman Luciana Paluzzi is excellent. Paluzzi's character does not to fall for Bond's good looks and charisma; she has charm herself, but she is a killer at her core. Even now, she stands out as one of the most formidable and interesting henchmen in the series. It does not have a relentless high pace, but the actors have a magnetism and the director has the flair and intelligence to make it great. This is a standout in the 007 cannon and one of my personal favorites.

She's never been so raw, so cold yet full of hidden emotions at the same time. She gives a brilliant, flawless performance.Leo was good, but not as great as Kate. He was somewhat stiff throughout, which I know is a part of his character but at points his delivery was so ready & so stagy that it didn't hit home. HOWEVER, he really lets loose in the final half hour, when his character cracked, and it gave me chills. Brilliant moment.I wasn't a fan of the (count 'em) THREE false endings of this movie. It should have ended 20 minutes before it did. The emotional intensity reached its peak, and yet it continued on & on & on.Michael Shannon as a "not well" neighbor was one of the best parts of the movie. The writing, acting and directing of this character was very well done.I also wish there were more scenes in the beginning showing WHY these 2 people love each other...a LITTLE more of them being happy would have gone a long way & it would have been more devastating to watch things fall apart.
