Storyline

The student Ducobu was again dismissed from a school. To get out of it, this attaching dunce will have to surpass and develop the most ingenious and spectacular cheats ever imagined. The game is far from being won because Mr Latouche, his formidable teacher, is a tough opponent and Léonie, the first of the class on whom he tries to copy, is not going to remain long under his spell .

Decent film for kids
17 November 2011 | by niluferauladinSee all my reviews

'L'élève Ducobu' has one of the child actors from 'Little Nicholas' as its main lead. The film is for children who are at an age where they understand things. It's a bit like 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid'. There are many things that are a bit unbelievable, if not a bit too much, in this film. This includes the lead character, who seems a bit too smart for his age. Nevertheless, the kid who plays him does a wonderful job. There's the class teacher, who impresses a lot and surprises a lot as well. There's another teacher that surely leaves an impact; a particular movement of hers (no spoiler here) you will remember after the film is over.

Overall, it's a great film for those (kids & adults) who are looking to waste some time on a decent film.
