Storyline

One of the funniest movies I've seen in a long time
27 April 2012 | by KimmmmiSee all my reviews

I saw this last night and could not stop laughing. It is difficult to keep pacing throughout a movie but this movie does that and keeps you laughing throughout. While other reviewers seem offended by the antics of the French family, many of us in the audience nodded realizing we all have those crazy members in the family who left under their own devices act insane.

Chris Rock plays the straight man in this movie which is a refreshing change of pace. The chemistry of the cast is evident throughout in how familiar they are with one another and how comfortable the actors seems to be. It is easy to believe that you have walked into a crazy family dynamic. The storyline is quirky and plot a little light but the laugh out loudness of this movie more than makes up for it.
