Interesting comedy
3 January 2003 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

Interesting comedy featuring one of France best actor, Michel Blanc. He's also directing this movie. Some scenes are hilarious, like the car ride with the Black guy driving. Good laughs also at the hospital or when Michel Blanc's character is also sick or complaining about something. We don't know how those two guys met years ago, but we don't really care, the fun goes on from here. The ending, though, is a bit too abrupt I think.

Out of 100, I give it 73. That's good for **½ out of ****.

Seen at home, in Toronto, on December 17th, 2002.
