Total waste of time and money!
23 April 2011 | by scriptusSee all my reviews

What a waste of time! It's really, really bad, on any level: writing, acting, directing. I like Rachid Badouri very much, he's the main reason I watched this movie, but even such a talented guy couldn't save this total mess. The plot is simply idiotic, but it could be okay if it was funny! The only time I laughed a little was at the Bloopers in the ending credits. Beyond the fact that this movie is just awful, it makes me wonder how come it was ever made. Do those people even read the script? The dialog is awful, trying to play on antagonism between French and Quebeckers, but it falls flat every time. Please, stay away from this movie, take a walk outside, even if it's raining, you'll have a much better time than being insulted by so much stupidity and pretension that this film contains.
