Storyline

In Paris, on the eve of her 35th birthday, Claire Dostes decides to invite her three boy-friends Sacha Peters, Charles Thiriot and Prince Hakim and her best friend Ruitchi to a dinner party, with the objective of helping her to decide who would be her future husband. Meanwhile, the police detective Eric Cellier is chasing two small time thieves that are heisting the apartments in her neighborhood. Along the night, Claire accidentally kills her four guests. When she calls her sister Alice to help her, she brings dozen of friends for a surprise birthday party. Soon she receives also the two burglars and the policemen under the command of Cellier. And the night has not finished yet. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

outrageously funny
1 February 1999 | by (Karlsruhe, Germany) – See all my reviews

A murder-slapstick-comedy. Reminded me a little of those old Louis de Funes movies, but Serial Lover is much more 90s, and much more bloody, too. The funniest film I've seen since Clerks.

I can't imagine anyone I know who wouldn't have a hell of a time with this movie. It's so funny! And the female lead does a perfect job of playing your average woman who suddenly has things getting way, way over her head, without knowing how she got into that mess in the first place.

While it may not be totally original all of the time, this movie has a certain kind of freshness to it that I haven't seen in comedy movies for years.

Did I say it is funny? It is. From start to finish.

See it before they make the (inevitable) americanized version.
