Surprisingly, not bad
24 August 2003 | by otaku_arianeSee all my reviews

Not bad. Not bad at all. But not too good either. The story is really bad, unoriginal, idiotic, BUT many situations in it are very funny. Most of the actors played very well (except for Veronique Cloutier, who seemed out of the picture a lot, I thought, and oh god! her song was so bad I plugged my ears). One think bugged me: there are a lot of very violent (disgusting) scenes which I could have passed... I usually don't expect to be closing my eyes each 5-10 minutes when watching a comedy.

I had promised myself not to watch it, because the critics said it was the worst movie of the year, and worst quebecer movie of all times, but when I saw the trailer I laughed a lot at some of the jokes and I thought «well...maybe I should give it a try? And hey, 4$CAN at the video club is not the end of the world». Ended up I liked the movie. See, we should never believe the critics: after all, they were all unanimous in thinking that this movie was the worst rubbishy of the year, but everyone I know that had the courage to rent it anyways said it «wasn't as bad as they said».
