Valet, The (La Doublure)
Source: Catholic News Service
Amusing French farce about a restaurant parking valet (Gad Elmaleh) who is paid to pretend he's having an affair with a supermodel (Alice Taglioni) to fool the suspicious wife (Kristin Scott Thomas) of a wealthy industrialist (Daniel Auteuil) who is actually involved with the model himself, and the sympathetic model helps the valet woo the childhood sweetheart (Virginie Ladoyen), now a bookstore owner, whom he truly loves. Writer-director Francis Veber is a master at this sort of concoction, and like most classic farces, though it seems to be about amorous matters, nothing happens at all, and everything is resolved morally by the final fade-out. Subtitles. An instance of the f-word and some other crude language, innuendo, a prior adulterous affair, and a chaste bedroom scene with an accidental groping. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
