Funnier than more expensive french movies
18 July 2003 | by (Switzerland) – See all my reviews

Frankly I was expecting the worst after seeing what the others frenchTV-comical-show-guys had played in like the movie "la tour montparnasse infernal" and all the latest awful and not funny at all movies like "Taxi 3" or the latest movie by the "Les Inconnus".

But what a big surprise, the stupid wanna be disco-singer story is just a very small part of the movie despite what the music video clip and trailer may look like but instead there is just some kind of police-love story with a less childish humor than in most french movies and the end is one of the best I've seen recently.

I've seen 17 movies in 4 days recently and I don't remember even one where I couldn't forsee the end after 30 minutes but with this one...I could never think of what was coming next.There are places where the pace goes down a little but nothing boring.

The acting was not so great I admit but for a first movie with "beginning" (TV people) actors and non-actors guest stars I have never seen one this good !

If you have some "smoking" knowledge or friends and/or like Michael Youn and Vincent Desagnat, are let's say between 16-30 years and want some pure fun watch this movie, it IS entertaining and it IS funny...but beware because the story is pretty "high" if you see what I mean ;) no need to smoke to see weird things lol

I WANT TO SEE "la beuze 2" ! :)
