Great Film full of French Humor
30 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I think that people that don't speak or understand French should not watch this movie because French films are made to watch in French. I think people should stop rating this film and just not watch French movies if they watch it English. I'm warning you if you watch this film in English, it will loose it's every aspect it's worth watching for. The difference between English and French films is that even though you can add French or English dubs to a movie, you can translate a movie from one language to another, but you can never translate everything. I've watched French films in English, there's no point because it's a completely different film. This film is funny,sarcastic, slightly violent but in a funny way and full of French jokes which is impossible to translate to English. So I suggest for people not to watch this film unless they speak and understand perfectly the French language. This movie deserves more than it was rated.
