First of all what everyone must understand is that basically it can't be as well appreciated by someone who does not understand french. The hardest thing to translate is humour. I learned this the hard way... what's funny in french often doesn't even translate into English and vice versa.
I enjoyed this film. Not all the sketches were exceptional but some moments had me in hysterics. I did see Jackass and I didn't like it as much. If you have seen other things with Michael Youn and his two buddies you will understand why they're so popular in France, they are actually quite hilarious. Although I think I can live on without seeing Michael Youn yelling MORNING LIVE naked through the streets of Paris for the 100th time. (FYI NO THAT WAS NOT A SPOILER FROM THE MOVIE ITS FROM HIS SHOW MORNING LIVE which is no longer airing)
Obviously if you do not like this genre of film, don't watch it, plain and simple. You will not like it... I REPEAT you will not like it.
