Quebec is the only place in the world where Titanic has never been #1 at the Box office. Les Boys is the only movie that grossed more. It even stayed longer in theater than Titanic. Even James Cameron, in an interview with the Journal de Montréal asked the journalist what was Les Boys. See more »
I've seen Les Boys back in 1997 when I was pretty bored of those shoot em up American movies. I've spent a hell a good time. It was pure fun all the way ! A movie about hockey will never be as good as this one. Movies like Mighty Ducks and Mystery Alaska are insults to this sport. In Québec, hockey is a religion. It's our national sport. Unfortunately, you must speak french fluently if you want to understand the jokes. If you do, you won't be disappointed.
Les Boys is the story of Stan, a hockey club owner who owes 50 000 $ to a guy named Méo. If he doesn't pay Méo back before the end of the week, he get his legs broken. But Méo finds another way to bargain with Stan as he proposes him to plan a game between Stan's Boys and his own team. But will the Boys accept to help Stan...
This movie was full of laughs and gags as the movie explores the characters' private lives. Bob is a ladiesman who needs cash, Ti-Guy is a lonely salesman who extorts money form people by sailing old ugly houses and apartments, Jean-Charles is a gay lawyer who hides his homosexuality, François is a surgeon and Julien is a dope head guitarist. All of these colourful characters create a perfect climax that shows how hard life can get at sometimes and how beautiful it could be at other times. It's a great comedy about friendship, women, hockey and life.
Les Boys is part of Louis Saïa's epic saga that continues with Les Boys 2 and Les Boys 3. Overall, a good movie with an excellent (canadian) cast. Have fun watching this different kind of movie.
