this is a GOOD comedy
25 July 2015 | by (In front of the screen) – See all my reviews

I come on IMDb for more than 10 years, i can't believe this good movie has a so poor score here. It's the first time I come to write on IMDb, I just want to say that this movie is very good. First it's funny, OK maybe some french jokes can only be appreciated by french people, I don't know. Second it reminds the good holiday atmosphere that we all had experienced at least one time in our life during our childhood, or later. And third, and it's the more important, it's what's make this movie bigger than it seems, it's show the difference between poor people and rich people. I can't say more because I don't want to write any spoilers, but for me the score of this movie should be between 6 and 8, not at all under 5. Especially when we know that Franck Dubosc (Patrick, in the movie) had also a poor life when he was kid, which make him perfect in this role. I have already watched hundreds and hundreds of movies in my life, this one really belong to the one I like to watch more than one time (and they are not so many movies that are worth to watch more than once in my opinion) and to recommend to my friends.
