Me and my kids can't get this movie out of our head!
19 July 2016 | by Bertrand HenriSee all my reviews

I'm quite picky to like movies, especially movies for children... I understand the bad ratings that got this one. But i want to say that i enjoyed very much this movie... I don't know where did it come from, it's like an UFO, you could find a few flaws to it, i guess, but it really worked for me... I'm french and about of the age of the writer (Jamel Debbouze)... so maybe that helped me to be synchronized with what he wanted to do. I felt this movie has been made with heart, every character, every moment captivated me, i feel it's like a music that can work for you or not... In my case, again, it worked from start to finish, even if the story sometimes lacks of credibility, it really didn't matter, the voices of the characters and their acting made me always laughed or smiled or something... They even imitated a very famous comic actor of the past of the french cine (Louis de Funes)... That was so amazing to hear him almost alive...! I saw it with my kids two or three times, and we often imitate now the way the characters spoke, or jokes they made... So, believe it or not, this movie is one of my favorite, all category, all time! It's a UFO, but made with heart!! I can assure you at least that. But i completely could understand if you won't find anything there enjoyable for yourself. Especially if you're not French and if you see it dubbed in other languages... But try it and see if the music hits you!
