French comedy at its best
18 February 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

French are masters at making hilarious comedies! This one reminds me of "Dinner with Friends". Don't be fooled by the name or cover image - it's not for kids or those faint at heart. All the Catholic jokes you've ever heard, and then some, are seamlessly woven into a coherent & fast-paced story. This precious little hidden gem will definitely crack up the audience, excluding devout Catholics of course. Great choice on the lead actors, especially the teenage boy whose performance can make you laugh one minute then cry the next. And one more thing: don't watch dubbed version. Hearing the conversations in its original French tongue makes it that much funnier!
