Didn't live up to Sattouf's debut
6 November 2014 | by christophe92300See all my reviews

After Les Beaux gosses in 2009, everybody placed high hopes on Riad Sattouf's and was expecting his second movie to live up to his debut one but Jacky au royaume des filles turns out to be a complete disappointment. The scenario, to his credit, relies on an original and quirky background with lots of well thought out details but the plot could be summed up in one line and therefore runs out of steam very quickly. If the comic could compensate for the weakness of the script... but the few, contrived gags barely crack the viewer a smile. You finish this sloppy and endless (despite lasting only 1h30) movie in freewheel mode.
