A Perfect Plan (French: Un plan parfait) is a 2012 French action adventure comedy film directed by Pascal Chaumeil and starring Diane Kruger, Dany Boon, and Alice Pol. Written by Laurent Zeitoun and Yoann Gromb, and based on a story by Philippe Mechelen, the film is about a successful woman in love who tries to break her family curse of every first marriage ending in divorce, by dashing to the altar with a random stranger before marrying her boyfriend.
Isabelle (Diane Kruger) is prepared to marry Pierre (Robert Plagnol), the man she has loved for the past ten years. First she has to overcome a curse that her female family members have been battling for years—that all their first marriages end in divorce. Isabelle comes up with the perfect plan. She will marry a stranger and get a quick divorce to avoid the curse and be happily married forever the second time. She flies to Copenhagen and finds the perfect pigeon in Jean Yves (Dany Boon), an editor for the Guide du Routard, but her plans are complicated when he believes that she is in love with him. When Isabelle's arranged marriage goes awry, she tracks down the pigeon in hopes she can somehow marry him and divorce him without too much trouble. When he travels to Kenya, she follows him in the hope that he will sign her divorce papers.
