Enjoyable comedy by one of France's best director, Patrice Leconte. I liked this one better than «Les Bronzés». But the movie wouldn't be that good (not even close) without Michel Blanc. He plays the friend who's like a leech. He's always in your way, always taking advantage of you. But at the same time, he's the friendly good fellow, the one you don't really want to keep away. Giraudeau is also doing a good job, so is Thérèse Liotard. Great songs by French singer Renaud. A good way to spend 80 minutes. Longer than that might have been a problem.
Seen at home, in Toronto, on December 11th, 2005.
