French Comedy at its Best!
10 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Here we see once again how it is possible to make a movie with a classic scenario and turn over the whole genre. The musical/college style was revisited by french comedy and turned into a cynical parody of rivalry at American High Schools and its consequences.

Although these consequences are clearly overdone, and arguably at some points the directors went even over that limit ----SPOILER ALERT!!!---- //don't read any further if you don't want your movie experience to get ruined// when alleging to Kennedy's Assassinate or when turning towards black humor,----END OF SPOILER---- it is characteristic of what makes french comedy: not to be afraid of exaggerations nor of political (un-)correctness.

I do recommend this movie to anyone, with a slight preference to people familiar with the french language and its expressions. Indeed, a lot of jokes are about french/English language mix-ups who might appear boring or unoriginal to those who can't identify with their subtleties.

8/10
