The previous reviewer had no sense of humor!

Sure, "Ça va faire mal" is one of the tackiest, most vulgar sex farce ever made. But it's also one of the funniest. There's never a dull moment in that film, thanks to Jean-François Davy's perky direction and to a lively, inventive script. The actors all give the impression that they were having a ball while shooting it and I found their glee truly contagious. And I disagree with Leonie-2: Henri Guybet's a great character actor who excels at screwball comedy and who very rarely gives a less-than-stellar performance. He is wonderful here in a thankless role. Menez's performance is also very enjoyable.

"Ça va faire mal" is now one of my favorite bad films. This is a very TASTY turkey, the BEST cheese of the month.

Of course, I know Leonie-2 very well. We live in the same body, but beware of Leonie when she has a bad headache and is trying hard to NOT like a film or an actor.

That said, my first review of "Ça va faire mal" is one of the things that I regret the most to have ever written. I offer my heartfelt apologies to Jean-François Davy, Henri Guybet and Bernard Menez.
