Entertaining, no more.

A classic, typical french comedy around sport - the famous Tour de France. In the line of LE FILS A JOE or LES SEIGNEURS - for soccer game

  • forgettable but quite entertaining. Every thing, or almost, is

foreseeable, full of clichés. But I like sport films - myself am an athlete - so I don't really watch these features like other ones, with the movie buff's eye, see what I mean? I don't put much attention to the filming, editing or even acting. But, of course, if it's very well done, I appreciate. Clovis Cornillac is a lousy actor, so are the other ones in this flick. I was glad to see the great retired athletes like Bernard Hinault or Laurent Jalabert in cameo appearances. Some good surprises, in this film. For instance the Italian cyclist who is shown in the first three quarters of the movie as an arrogant and unsympathetic character, eventually is a very good one, just in the end. And the sequence between Cornillac and the Black musicians, Rap singers, when the accept him in the first place and he nearly insult them just after...You don't expect this. I love that. But that doesn't make it a good film although.

If you have nothing else to do, no shopping, no dating, no sport practicing, really nothing but boring yourself, so go and see it. Maybe it will prevent you to commit suicide...
