A clique of four young teachers at a high school looks critically at their colleagues. To avoid falling in the same routine, they bring new ideas into the school lessons and play little games and pranks in their spare time -- sometimes get even more childish than their pupils. When they get opposition from the other teachers, they play tricks to get rid of them. Written by Tom Zoerner <>

Teachers are kids : they can't live out of school !
17 May 2006 | by (L'Isle Jourdain, France) – See all my reviews

Frederic Game is probably the best literature teacher you could have in high school. Young, intelligent, nice and completely rebel... Indeed, what kind of teacher could say "Do not admit everything the adults tell you" ? Working this way, the nonconformist Frederic ends by creating two parts in the high school. Of course, there are his friends : Gérard, the funny P.E. teacher, Michel, the imaginative (but quite unsuccessful) arts teacher and Francis, the lazy deputy librarian. But there are the teachers who can't bear him and his team : amongst them, the deputy headmaster and the librarian are the worst. So, how to fight against old-fashioned teachers who do not wish to see the changes ? Simple : using teenagers pranks. So, the fanatic Marxist Geography teacher is shaved in order to look like Adolf Hitler ; the team offers to the scorning Maths teacher some coffee with too much alcohol in it, turning him into a drunken, impolite ass ; the sadistic Physics teacher who physically punish her pupils get her chemistry products all messed up... So Boom !!!

But after all, a part of good and bad teachers, some boring and some interesting classes, isn't that all schools are made about ? We can't have the school like Frederic Game wants it to be, but what he says in the movie, about future students using computers and worldwide information, it's pretty much what we're living today with Internet... So, though it's not a great movie, I like it. And it's always funny to see a young Patrick Bruel (who became one of our most famous singers) and a young Fabrice Luchini (completely crazy but wonderful actor, both on movies or on stage).
