Quebec suburb life spoofed
17 September 2008 | by (Montreal, Canada) – See all my reviews

Based on the Elvis Gratton series with the same actor and character, we see now this guy in his suburban environment.

To tell you the truth: the man is an exuberant, overrated guy, who acts like he owns the world. He is proudly Canadian, despises Quebec nationalists, a bit racist (especially anything named "Wong"), sexist and gay-basher (despite the fact his brother is gay !), but however makes an effort to accept with "reasonable accommodations" some of the situations he sometimes despise to face...

Spending his time between his house and his gas station (a "big gas station"...) and later a run-down motel (the 3rd season is a disappointment though), Bob is at least liked by his peers: his not-so-dumb brother-in-law Meo, three employees: an handicapped man, a bum and a blonde bombshell, the bit crooked "Total-Mart" clerk who tries to pull him a fast one each time, the Chamber of Commerce president, his Quebec nationalist neighbor and starting from the second season, his girlfriend Maggy, who tries to pull out the "Elvis" string out of Bob...

Okay, the show's have vulgar and shocking situations, but if you don't take it seriously, it is a spoof of suburb life in Quebec. You can't get it worse, take it lightly.

Fun to see Julien Poulin keep on going with this character. However, with the first movie "Elvis Gratton" and this series, you can't get wrong (there is the movie sequels, but avoid them !)

Yeah, think big !
