Embarrassing bastardized version of a French classic
15 April 2012 | by (Lapjat) – See all my reviews

Wow, how low can we go" Since this movie was (improperly) advertised as the "English (USA) version of the award-winning French comedy", let me inform readers about the original.

The original award-winning comedy classic quickly became an international success both artistically as financially. Receivinh numerous honors including six Cesar nominations winning three: best script, best actor, and best supporting actor. The "Cesar du cinema Francais" is similar to our (USA) Oscar Academy Awards and annually rewards the best performance in the various cinema-related specialties from acting to production. It has been used as a teaching model for writing intelligent humorous scripts, inventive editing, and acting in some cinema schools. Thhe French adapted their script from his play of the same title which premiered in 1997 and has been playing ever since in Europe. It is a masterpiece worth discovering. The script was intelligently written, the quick paced dialog flowed harmoniously as the protagonist's situation deteriorated. The interpretation was sensitive, expressive and flawless.

Back to LOL: As an American, I found the Hollywood version insulting and demeaning. Trying to bank on the success of the original as is often the case with remakes, you take whatever worked in the first presentation, recycle it, repeat it over, amplify it, mass produce it, etc… In LOL, you steal an original premise, bastardize a bullet-proof script, exaggerate the humorous moments to absurdity, add profanity and obscenity to the dialogue, mix in some scenes, sanitize to ensure (American) political correctness, include most ethnic groups to maximize distribution (i.e. profit margin), the only thing missing may have been to add some farts and burps… You get the picture.
