She is the director of a prestigious contemporary art foundation… He lives off odd jobs and social security benefits. She graduated after 7 years at university… He almost spent 7 years behind bars. She is on familiar terms with the Ministry of Culture and Arts… He is on familiar terms with each and every alcoholic beverage that happens to cross his path.

    Huppert, Poelvoorde and Dussullier are experts all.

    The hilarity of the film creeps up slowly and from every angle, not through the facile immediacy of short-lived laughter.

    No one loves a broad comedy like the French, but Gallic touches of restraint tend to keep such light entertainment pleasing rather than blundering.

    Whether this is an argument for or against marriage probably depends on the viewer's own experience.

    The first half of My Worst Nightmare contains some of the best comedy and the biggest laughs of the season, and the second half ... eh.

    Huppert fans have long been tolerant of her hit-and-miss filmography, and while her double act with the rubber-faced Poelvoorde provides a few well-played scenes-two words: horsey rides-it's not enough to liven up a trite story of loosening up.

    Its tepid satire of art world pretensions culminates with a visual dirty joke that is mildly amusing but still not worth the wait.
