3 zéros is a loose series of sketches intertwined with a lazy characterization. No character needs you to care for him. Some are the goodies and appear to be a little humane. Others are here for what would be conceitedly called a satiric focus on the football business. In fact Gérard Darmon (Marbello) is the only character in tune with what the movie wishes to be. And that's saying an awful lot.
Gérard Lanvin (middleman Colonna) is supposed to be a congenial dirty profiteer. Le Bihan (ex con Manu) stands in for a dumb loser (Le Bihan + dumb loser, well that's a piece of characterization). The same goes for Lorant Deutsch (Kovacs), following the steps of a bland prodigy, born with a leather ball instead of a brain, who just happen to be stuck here like the rest of the cast.
To cap it all, most of the lines fall flat. The story is totally erratic with nothing to keep eyes on all along. The music is pure soup (another sponsor who's lost money here in PP?) with a major stealing from François de Roubaix and an insufferable main title (Stomy Bugsy). Down and out, terrible. The people responsible for this must have thought 'Hey the idea is great just weeks before the Soccer World Cup, that will work'.
