Not as bad as people would make you believe
1 April 2007 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

"Selon Charlie" is not a great movie. But it's still enjoyable. That's because the cast is doing a good job. Jean-Pierre Bacri is excellent. I also liked the two Benoîts: Magimel and Pœlvoorde. But the plot is too complicated and the director doesn't spend enough time working on character development. The movie stays on the surface. A lot more could have been done at the editing stage to skim the movie of the extra fat that makes it only an average flick.

Seen in Toronto, at the Royal, on March 31st, 2007. The film was shown during Cinéfranco.

76/100 (**½)
