Trivia

The title "La beuze" is not the real title. The title was submitted as La beuh (which means weed in French). The Film censorship decided they have to modify the title in order not to promote drugs. See more »

Okay, it is silly. And it's Okay.
2 April 2004 | by (Paris) – See all my reviews

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.
