Pierre-Louis is a successful investment broker who sees a hit and run and informs the police. As he is the only eyewitness willing to testify against the driver Jackhammer, the vicious leader of a gang of bikers, Pierre-Louis is whisked off to the witness protection program in a trailer park run by the kitschy Jackie Pigeon. A chapter of inept bikers called the Wanna-Bees also come to stay at the campground. When Pierre-Louis and Jackie are attracted to each other, Pierre-Louis is threatened by the investigating police officer, who also has designs on Jackie. Meanwhile Jackhammer is out on bail and contacts all the biker chapters to be on the lookout for the disguised Pierre-Louis. Written by Will Gilbert

Solid comedy -- Quebec humour in abundance
23 July 2004 | by (Sherbrooke, Quebec) – See all my reviews

Saw this in VOF (Version Originale Français) last night, so caveat emptor -- I have no idea how it will translate, or if the jokes will make it through dubbing/subtitling. You've been warned!

On the whole, a solid effort with lots of laughs and some interesting directorial choices. Sometimes I was left wondering if the director was just throwing in everything but the kitchen sink to impress the audience with his oh-so-cute clever ideas, but the gimmicks are spaced out enough that it comes across as charming rather than contrived.

The plot is, of course, ludicrously thin. This works in the movie's favour, though, because it gives a lot of latitude to let the humour play out. Basically a paint-by-numbers fish-out-of-water script, Guy Lepage lifts it out of potential problems by delivering a rock-solid performance that finds the good precarious balance between baffled straight man and comic anal-retentive protagonist.

It's light, and a great way to fritter away an evening. My only real problems were the occasional dip into toilet humour, and the fact that I found the lead female character more horrifying than attractive, and the plot of the movie rotates around her being immensely desirable.

Small quibbles, though. With low expectations and decent French, you're in for a fun couple of hours.
