Unfortunately, Québec is not ready to make good movies.
18 October 1998 | by Flix-4See all my reviews

When other countries can invest $70 to 285 millions in a movie production, here, in Quebec, we still have difficultly reaching the $3 millions. Though, since the money is not given easily, we would appreciate, as a public, to see good movies... "Les boys" is a predictable story of a hockey team. I don't need to tell you more! It's a "Mighty Ducks" version for grown-ups. The style is not worked out, and the cast is just good enough to keep you from leaving the theater.

When are we, as a country, stand up and finally find our own style, unique and wonderful? A "Les boys" and the up-coming "Les boys 2" (it's a sequel!) really tell us that Quebec is not yet ready for this to happen...

A poor film: 1 tiny * on 10.
