Predictable but funny French farce
1 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This typical 90's french farce staring Christian clavier follows his considerably more successful "Les Visiteurs" released the year before with many of the same actors. Unlike that film - which became a classic of sorts - "La Vengeance" was quickly forgotten. I didn't see it when it first came out but I caught it on TV5 the other night (TV5 on cable and satellite is the only way to watch french movies subtitled in English that wouldn't never make it to region 1 DVD or on artsy IFC).

If the story is so typical of french popular comedies (a sympathetic loser caught between a wife and a mistress, annoying in-laws, a dash of political commentaries, criticism of trash TV and yuppies) and totally predictable from start to finish, it is still very funny.

Clémentine Célarié in the role of the mistress is great as is the dynamic between Christian Clavier and his wife Marie-Anne Chazel who are also married in real life (a real "art-imitating-life" situation?) . Thierry Lhermitte (complete with fake too-white-to-be-true teeth and a toupee) makes a very funny turn as the cheesy TV presenter hosting a popular "tell-all" live show (the show in which the blonde wife of the title will take her revenge..")
