Major disappointment. Viewer beware !
4 February 2001 | by st.lyonsSee all my reviews

What starts off in high gear i.e. a great opening sequence, quickly degenerates into a real mess of undeveloped characters, totally ludicrous situations and a series of very clumsy slapstick attempts to show what happens when a man goes off the deep end after his wife leaves him for no apparent reason. The talent is definitely there and my hat goes off to Michel Cote for doing his best with surely one of the most thankless roles to come along for quite some time. The rest of the cast, including Patrick Huard, Sylvie Leonard and Guylaine Tremblay give it their all but somehow this film looks like an over-expanded sitcom that should never have made it beyond the pilot episode. The scenario for this one should have been seriously re-examined for some big gaping holes. The sequences in the dentists' office are not to be believed. Almost the kind of film that's so bad it's good - but not quite. OK, I did hang on until the bitter end just to see how bad it could get. I wasn't disappointed. The clever moments amount to about fifteen minutes of screen time. However, you might want to watch this when you have some vacuuming to do some evening as it will certainly show up on television one of these days. But do yourselves a favor. Save the rental fee. It ain't worth the long, long stretches of inane comedy/drama that made you want to send everyone involved back to the drawing board. Besides, you don't want to have nightmares about going to see the dentist. 5 out 10.
