"Menteur" is a riot.
28 July 2019 | by SnobReviewsSee all my reviews

"Menteur" ("Compulsive Liar") is a hilarious romp that will you have you rolling in the aisles.

In this Québecois comedy, a compulsive liar must learn to tell the truth when his falsities turn into reality.

Overall, "Menteur" really delivers from its opening moments until the end. Louis-José Houde is a firecracker and delivers an unforgettable performance. Antoine Bertrand is delivers a solid comedic performance out of his comfort zone. A two-hour, over-the-top laugh fest that you will be thinking of long after the credits roll. I really enjoyed this comedy.

Go see it.
