French humor cinema doesn't dare stupidity. Usually. Eric and Ramzy did a stupid movie, "la tour montparnasse infernale" and it worked quite well. La Beuze is of that kind : the two heroes are stupid, they do stupid things and they meet stupide people. And that's okay for me, it doesn't pretend to be much more ! There is even a very very light kind of emotion, yeap, something happens, I don't know what. Maybe it comes from the score, lots of 70's-80's music... Maybe it is because it's a blaxplotation movie ? Some Scenes will stay forever in my mind, like one where the two heroes yell "99 luftballon". I liked very much the last minutes too. I forgot to tell the plot : James Brown's hidden son, named Alfonse Brown, gets out of le Havre prison, he wants to stop smoking because he plans to become a singer. Like his daddy.
