Needs more comedy, however Funes annihilates as usual

I am trying to understand these French type of movies which like to morph into different genres in a single movie like one is a comedy about a restaurant but switches to a car chase action movie later on while this movie is about a band as the title says and then becomes a mystery-romance about whose baby is whose. Now my rating is clear why it is like this. Make it about the title more. However Funes plays a more regulator type who has to keep his band up to quality swinging their legs all over the place (so like a girl dance group not really a 'band') however he is the best and annihilates as usual.
