The Boys are back at it! The first one was funny, the second one was o.k., the third one is a little bit less enjoyable. And this one is way too long: 124 minutes. This is a movie that shouldn't go over 100 minutes.
But the acting is still good, and the Boys are funny. Patrick Huard especially, but also Paul Houde, Marc Messier, Éric Lapointe, Yvan Ponton and Pierre Lebeau.
Two singers have a role in this one: Éric Lapointe and France D'Amour. The soundtrack is excellent with great hits from Québec.
The movie actually contain more emotions than the first two, which is good. Except that the director seemed to forgot sometimes that he's making a slapstick comedy. Maybe that explains the exaggerated running time.
Out of 100, I gave it 71. That's good for ** out of **** stars.
Seen in Toronto, at the Canada Square Famous Players Cinemas, during the French-films festival Cinéfranco, on April 10th, 2002.
