Trivia

The red and white toilet seat that we can see when Edith sobs is the same that was used at the end of Happiness Is in the Field (1995), another film by Étienne Chatiliez. See more »

Goofs

At the beginning of the scene where Tanguy rushes out the stairs and asks his mother for a shirt (she actually threw away), we can see Eric Berger's head as he's waiting in the stairs to appear. See more »

Believe it or not, it's good
9 September 2005 | by (Mainaschaff, Germany) – See all my reviews

Since I didn't enjoy "La vie est un long fleuve tranquille", I didn't expect too much from "Tanguy" when I went to the cinema. Surprisingly enough, the movie was good. I mean really good. Monsieur Chatiliez, the director of "La vie..." and "Tanguy", shows that french comedies can actually be a thousand times better than some modern American comedies. Because Tanguy has it all: this movie has a soul, charming and believable actors, a good script and well thought gags. The movie tells the story of Tanguy, a 28-year old guy who still lives with his parents. One day, his mother Edith can't take this situation any longer, and together with her husband she tries to get Tanguy out their home. It's easy to see that this storyline is a good basis for some great gags and funny situations; and the movie eventually succeeds. I left the cinema with satisfaction, because I saw one of the few intelligent - and most importantly funny - modern comedies. I recommend this gem to anyone who's tired of stupid and underwhelming American comedy-flicks like "Dumb and Dumber".
