We went to see "It's Complicated" over the weekend and although the reviews have been mixed, I thought it was fun. Most of the audience was speaking French before the lights went down on this VO (version originale) showing, English with French subtitles. But judging from the audience reactions, they were all following along with the spoken dialogue.
Best laughs of the night? After Alec Baldwin says to his ex-wife, played by Meryl Streep:
“I think this is very French of us - I have a young wife, but I’m having sex with my old wife.”
Most painful silence of the night?
The trailer for John Travolta's upcoming film "From Paris with Love" in which his character, while being interrogated by French police, throws out every hackneyed American putdown of the French people, language, and state. Hope there's more to that film than they're showing in the previews.
