May have sounded fun on page
9 August 2017 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

And you know it still has its moments, but as a movie overall it just doesn't work. You would have had more fun and more entertainment, if this was done in a weekly television program, a comedy show so to speak. Or just the best jokes put in a short movie. I really thought there would have been more, especially with the talent attached to the project acting-wise.

French cinema has produced some very entertaining and very successful comedies the last couple of years. And they mostly did not care about political correctness. In that regard this movie is in the same vain. Unfortunately it's one of the few things this has in common with the other movies. So if you think of those other movies, better set the bar way low. As low as the humor sometimes sinks.
