Not great but I disagree with one of the comments
26 January 2010 | by (Vietnam) – See all my reviews

Yes I agree with the two other comments it is indeed not a good movie.

I have laugh twice during the movie, and without noticing the movie.

However, french cinema is far from dead like any countries very good and very bad movies come out. There are tonnes of good french movies that came out recently! Gad Elmaleh is one of the funniest comedians on stage, my favourite by far. Anyone that speaks fluent french should watch his shows they are amazing, I laugh all the way. This is why I took the risk to watch this movie beside disappointing critics, and they were right it is not a good movie and it is definitely not funny.

*** happens I am sure Gad will be the first one to admit that he did not do a great job with this one. I still have hopes for him!
