Storyline

Brice, a motherless super rich 30-year-old teenager fancies himself a trendy surfer. Only he never stepped out of Nice where the sea remains desperately calm and flat. Brice awaits a giant wave like the one he knows happened in 1979. In the meantime, what he lacks in technique he successfully hides and compensates in style. Yellow T-shirt, yellow hair, yellow parties, he created his own little world where he "axes" people. One morning, his father is sent to jail and "Brice from Nice" is left penniless. He first decides to find out about that thing called "work" (one of his friends does it) at a local restaurant, but then decides robbing a bank is way easier. While escaping after a failed attempt, he meets Marius who needs money for foot surgery. His new best buddy has an idea how to get it: all it takes is for Brice to win the $100,000 prize at the "world underground surf cup". It would "completely" help if Brice had surfed at least once in his life. Written by Greg Philip <greg_philip@hotmail.com>

You'll love it if you don't take it seriously!
4 September 2005 | by (Brussels, Belgium) – See all my reviews

I had a great time watching this movie. Why? Simply because when I got out of the screening, I felt full of energy and i had a smile on my face. You can't say this from a lot of comedies, let alone movies of course.

There is no shame in making comedies. I don't understand why a movie should always be dramatic or convey a message. In a way, it has its own weird kind of humor just like the Monty Python had their own weird kind of humor. If you don't feel like watching this kind of movies, just don't go, you won't like it! If you're ready to experience a genuine weird French humor. Try it, you may love it!
