How insipid American movies can make great French ones (screen)
This time, my compatriots have it: sure, we love America but we are also fed up with the dull action movie soup we swallow indefinitely from Hollywood. As in the Revolutionary war, it's up to France to come to rescue again.
Thus, this movie brilliantly spoofs and deconstructs all the clichés of the genre: especially Fbouille, Potus, WWF In a way, this French duo has synthesized ZAZ, Monty python, SNL, cartoons and the french tradition of fun and it's indeed a non-stop laughing session: the key of this comedy is that the story is rationale and plausible. A great attention is brought to details (like the constant question about the boyfriend having licked her ...) and the gags come naturally and simply.
It's a pity that they had to shoot in France due to production budget because this part is the less interesting. But over all, I was happy to choose it over the "hobbit" robbing!
