Ceasar as seen better days
16 December 2002 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

Mediocre comedy set just before the arrival of Christ. Ceasar is preparing to receive Cleopatra. But the people is not happy with Ceasar's governance. There's some good scene, like the gladiators going on strike because they want better work conditions. Funny also to see that they had television at the time! Also, the advertisement during the circus. But there's also tasteless humor in this one. I mean, come on, the whole scene with Ceasar being gay. It's so typical of the bad taste comedies from the 80's. And the scene goes on, and on, and on. I almost fell asleep. Michel Serrault's talent is wasted as Ceasar. And Coluche's character is not too inspiring neither.

Out of 100, I give it 67. That's good for *½ out of ****.

Seen at home, in Toronto, on December 10th, 2002.
