It's almost a Constitution: not 11 Laws but 11+5+11 ! (DVD)
7 September 2010 | by (PariS) – See all my reviews

Going from the metaphysics of Trek to pleasure contest, "male organs" runs, nude concert, the change is abrupt but welcomed because it shows the diversity of human creation. Great inquiries, serious commitment are important but having a good laugh is essential too.

For this, Youn is my reference because he has something the other comic artists haven't: he opens doors left closed by the "fun nomenclatura". For me, he offers a child sensibility and appears to be someone who hasn't grown up. In that, i feel close to him. Maybe that does explain why i am really laughing at his movies despite i am the only one in my family.

Here, it does what he is best: he's him. As he said, they throw out the script, the sets: it's about his adventures with his buddies in the real life. For the divine edition, the bonuses are great because we got a second movie of 11 laws that bits are actually shown in the 1st movie. In addition, they prove that they aren't dumb, uncultured people: The serious review of the movie by a eminent teacher is hilarious because his analysis is nearly unintelligible. The pictures section testifies they know their classics and it's also funny to hear such moving music for such album.

From recollection, the best laws are the 4 minutes pizza delivery, the whirling supper, the new dictator, the space ballet, the supermarket gang, well i really had a good time with this band of brothers.

Finally, it's rather close to Trek after all: it's about sincerity, friendship told and made by people who has big hearts!
