Yet another failed French Comedy. This decade has not been kind for French Cinema and comedies are pretty catastrophic. This one is no exception.
The main issue to enjoy this movie is suspension of disbelief : the special effects used for Jean Dujardin to become a small man just don't work. They're incredibly botched: Dujardin looks inserted into every scene, nothing flows naturally and, most importantly, he doesn't look like a short man, he looks like a shrunk man. There's a difference and it's a big one. He looks like somebody kneeling, he looks like somebody you put on a smaller chair and in SFX he looks shrunk to 60%
So one can never get into the movie simply because it doesn't look right.
And then you have to go through a fairly ridiculous Rom Com, quite by the books hence predictable, not funny for a single moment and not charming for another.
With the exception of Efira...who's just great. But even her charm and wits can not save this movie. Pass Pass Pass
