Unfortunately the producers were also in vacation (tv)
5 July 2015 | by (PariS) – See all my reviews

I was very excited to watch this sequel as the 1st movie was truly funny and full of nostalgia. But it took only five minutes to wash away my enthusiasm. In a way, the title is lying because nearly all the students disappeared. The band of friends are together at the beginning for a very short short scene and then, only 3 and a half are used in the movie. So I feel cheated. Next, if the story would have been as good as the previous, it would have been maybe enjoyable but it takes forever to push the movie and the chosen location is the worst that they could have found: Saint Tropez ! For a french, we are saturated by this town that is sold as a dream while it's very common: it's funny to see that 30 years later another sequel of a cult comedy would do exactly the same error (« Les Randonneurs A Saint Tropez »). And worst: this one is not really funny. There is maybe three good jokes but that's all: if the cast is rather cool and play the game, if seeing again France in 80 wakes up good vibes, this is not enough at the end!
