Storyline

The reception is to take place in a sumptuous 17th century leisure castle and its beautiful park and the music to be supplied by an excellent DJ. The rich arrogant bridegroom demands that everything go according to plan. Max assures him that will be the case but what he fails to tell him is that his team is not absolutely above reproach. For instance, Etienne (as James), a second-rate entertainer, has replaced the top-level DJ; Adèle, Max's short-tempered assistant, keeps causing embroilment ; Guy, the wedding photographer is a free-loading has been; Josiane, Max's close collaborator and also lover, is on the verge of breaking up with him; Julien, a depressive ex-teacher turned waiter, once had a date with - the bride; Samy, an additional waiter, proves quite worthless.

Bad
5 February 2018 | by zictebanSee all my reviews

Everything seems artificial or pretty caricatural: characters, dialogues, situations like the quarrel in front of the castle at the beginning. You can not avoid having very quickly a feeling of a gross and clumsy comedy. As the movie goes on, you expect a storyline a bit more subtle but nothing different happens. Your initial impression grows more and more till becoming a mere and strong matter of fact: this movie is a pure failure aimed at entertaining typical right-thinking people.
