The concept is completely out there (don't worry, won't spoil it for you if you don't know what it is yet). But it does really work, because the actors really throw themselves into it. It does have flaws (as every other movie too), but overall the feeling is a good one. Another french comedy that aims and hits the target. Seems like they're onto something there.
The beginning alone is comedy gold. The way the french make fun of themselves is a sight to be seen. Or a scene to be seen in that case. You could say it's an inside joke, but I think a lot of people know that the french are not that fond of the English language, so making that a topic right off the start is a good thing. Plus it will indicate if you think this is something worth watching or not. Ridiculous it may seem, but it still has a lot of heart in it!
