I saw the original L'Appartment in London. It was clever, stylish, and had two incredible French actresses in it. It's not that complicated a plot. Hollywood took it and made Josh a little too weepy. The Rose Byrne character in the original was much more sympathetic. This was much more of a chick flick than the original. Everything for love!
Utterly disappointing for fans of L'APARTMENT. In the original we have attractive adults, here we have whiny pretty boys. The surprises make way to boredom. Important threads (like the stalker) are left unexplored. And what's that? A happy ending tacked on just because Hollywood can't handle anything else? The original is surprising and sexy; the remake just goes through the motions without ever really getting it.
