Irma La Douce - Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

Pretty good, very clever and witty, but I felt I'd seen this a lot before and that they were TRYING, really HARD. What happened between this and One two Three (diamond left?)

Kiss Me Stupid - Posted Image
I will revisit this, but only in the presence of an audience, because this very quickly degenerated into «wince» characters-act-stupid-to-move-the-plot-along comedy. The whole hide Dino from the wife thing just annoyed the hell out of me while trying to watch this alone so I just gave up and stopped paying attention.

When she embraces, your heart turns to stone
She comes at night, when you're all alone
And when she whispers, your blood shall run cold
You'd better hide before she finds you...
