A good laugh with good company
19 March 2005 | by matlefebvre20See all my reviews

The year is 2039. The situation on Earth is more than catastrophic. The ozone layer has been completely destroyed by the carbon dioxide from the automobiles and chemical industry. We must find a new planet to host six billions of humans. To do this, the spaceship Romano Fafard is sent "where man'd never been before" to find the new Earth. Adapted from the popular teen-oriented TV series, this sci-fi comedy, one of the finest movies of 2004 in Quebec, follows the adventures of the crew of Canada, the first global power (in the movie...). There is courageous and "mispeller" captain Charles Patenaude, sinister scientist Brad Spitfire, loyal second officer Flavien Bouchard, therapist Valence Leclerc, fat and less-than-genius pilot Bob, doctor Petrolia Stanislavski and funny robot Serge. This movie is really funny, one of the best Quebec comedies since a decade. There is a lot of caricatures of real life and some kind of philosophy behind the story, especially at the end, that gives some seriousness to the movie. Somehow, there is also some non-funny sequences and scenes where it is highly recommended to be mature to watch. There are also ridiculous ideas like the dryer machines shower and the beauty cult, where bigger is nicer. Globally, a must-see movie with your family.
