The Quebecker's "Spaceballs" - for fans only!
12 January 2011 | by (Gatineau, Canada) – See all my reviews

This movie is a true piece of Quebec's culture and is based on a very well known and admired television series. This movie has been awaited by many fans and has been popular enough to do a second movie a few years later. This movie is comparable to Mel Brook's "Spaceballs" and I would call this movie a parody of the popular science fiction movies or series where a couple of Quebeckers have to save the world and the whole galaxy.

The story isn't important in this movie as the goal is to laugh about the stupidity and absurdity of the antiheroes that get from one stunning and exaggerated situation to the next slapstick scenery. The weak point about this movie is that many jokes only work if you are yourself a Quebeckers because there are many puns or plays on words, many allusions to the French Canadian culture and the old series. For the fans of the series, this movie is a funny ride and a must see but anyone else will laugh from time to time but won't get all the jokes and allusion in the different situations. Some scenes may even seem to be completely embarrassing or senseless to those who haven't known the series. Another negative point is that the first twenty minutes or so are very funny, original and interesting but a lot of jokes or typical behaviours of the closed minded characters get repeated and become really annoying after a while and you can't laugh about this anymore. The movie is based on many quite superficial jokes and has a lack of variety or originality after a while.

That's why i would only recommend this movie to those who would like to know more about the culture, humour and television of Quebec or for the ones that know and like the series on which the movie is based. Anyone else that expects a great and original science fiction parody may only have a few laughs and don't understand the hype or appreciate this flick. That's why I can only give an average note to this movie after all from a very neutral point of view. Personally, I was disappointed by the lack of originality in this movie after a while though it was at least very entertaining.
