Very gentle comedy

Up until the last twenty minutes this is a gentle and lightly engaging Fench comedy. It tells the story of a lonely and unlikeable man (Daniel Auteuil) who, for a bet, tries to find a best friend that he can introduce to his friends. OK - it is not in the same league as the great French comedies like 'le dinner de cons' but it does have some OK moments - especailly the scenes between the two leads who are both (as always) very good. The big problem is the ending - which is dreadful. It features the French version of 'Who wants to be a millionaire' and I bet you can guess the ending already!
