Very entertaining comedy
21 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As far as comedies go, I must admit, this one from Quebec is much funnier than many of those made in France in recent years. This movie is humorous on three different levels: the slapstick comedy bits, the hilarious set-up and its continuous action and dialogs, and also the whole plot viewed as one wholesome story.

The movie is about two comedians who tour small villages and perform their stand-up routine in different bars. And, as luck would have it, in one of those villages they made fun of a wrong person in the crowd, who then immediately set on getting his revenge. Michel Côté is simply fantastic in his role of a village thickheaded old bachelor with no charms, who eventually acquires more and more social skills and "the sense of humor", with the help of those two funny-men that he holds as hostages.

What I especially liked about this film is the precision and subtlety with which the relationships between different people are portrayed and presented: between Luc and Marco, between Marco and his wife, between Luc and his sister, etceteras. But the main feature of this movie, that makes it so great, is that all the jokes work extremely well, they are all funny and delivered with impeccable finesse and exact timing.

In conclusion, this is a fantastic comedy, one of the best I've seen in years. Anne Dorval, though her role is quite short, shines brightly, as usual. I only give the film nine stars, because towards the end, a certain plausibility of main characters' actions was missing a bit, but this did not prevent it from having a grand and astounding finale.
