The Immigration and Naturalization Services (INS) pull a surprise visit to spoil their plans ... Bronte had just moved into an exclusive apartment. She had been interviewd by the tenant's committe to whom she lied that her husband was in Africa, doing academic research on music of the region. George moves in with Bronte as they scheme how to outwit the INS who are investigating if theirs is a "real marriage" or a ruse to trick the government. When their personal habits clash - the two realize just how little they know about each other. They share personal information and create a detailed nonexistent past - to outwit the government agents. Gerard Depardieu is amazingly funny as he ad libs scenes inventing stories to cover up his fake husband role ... He is especially effective in scenes where Bronte meets her good friend Lauren, played by the ever dead-pan comedienne, Bebe Niewirth, who is intrigued by George. George does an outstanding performance to impress Lauren's parents at a dinner party in their home. He wins Bronte's affections due to his creativity. Even Bronte's parents are won over by George's antics.Read more ›
This film was overlooked when it came out, but it deserves a second chance. Andie Macdowell is lovely and funny as Bronte, but it is Gerard Depardieu as Georges who steals the show. It is wonderful to see this unkempt, chain-smoking, abrasive Frenchman start to make inroads into the all too proper Bronte's heart.
One of the funniest scenes is the impromptu concert composer Georges gives for Bronte's stuffy society friends.
If you love lighthearted romance, this is one movie you'll really enjoy.
