"Ah-ah-ah" on the "ah-ah-ah-ah-ah" scale !
13 May 2005 | by (L'Isle Jourdain, France) – See all my reviews

I'm known to laugh quite easily, and "Les rois du gag" is a perfect example of something which is not the funniest movie in the world, but which I like.

Two young brothers-in-law, Paul and François, are trying to succeed as gag-men in a Paris suburb theater, living with only a few money, hoping for fame. In the same time, the famous entertainer Gaëtan, TV star, is living many issues : his shows are not as successful as they used to be, his wife is always complaining about his jokes... He decides to hire new gag-men to give some youth to his career... Paul and François will be the ones.

But just when the new show is on air, a famous mad director wants Gaëtan to be the star of his new, crazy and indescribable movie. What will choose Gaëtan : staying the old clown he always was, or becoming a "real" actor ?

Many scenes in the movie show the gag situations : I recommend the one with the dog and the french baguette, and the whole restaurant scene ! The movie is quite funny, you'll have many laughs, but I'm afraid you won't burst as you do when you watch..."Hot Shots". But it's worth a shot.
