Viens chez Moi, J'Habite Chez une Copine DVDCome to My Place, I live at a Girlfriend's (Viens chez Moi, J'Habite chez une Copine)
      1981 | France | Laughs: 7.6 (Laugh and Smile) | imdb: 6.3
      who was involved?

After losing his job, a chronic sociopath moves in with his best friend and his wife. In their small apartment, the little man soon takes a lot of space, always asking what's for dinner and bringing home a different girl every night. Without intending to, he gradually wrecks his friends' lives. If you enjoyed the 1980s and tolerate subtitles, then try out this little gem from the past. (Last viewed: June 2012)

Circulez Y A Rien A VoirCirculez Y A Rien A Voir
      1983 | France | Laughs: 7.4 (Laugh and Smile) | imdb: 4.9
      who was involved?

After a pair of unlikely cops make a routine call at a posh house, one of them becomes obsessed with the lady owner and starts tailing her instead of doing his job. This is a lovely 1980s comedy with very funny moments, particularly in the first half, as you might expect, and fine performances by Michel Blanc and Jacques Villeret, though the latter is underused. Vastly underrated—I was glad to discover it. (Last viewed: July 2014)

      1979 | France | Laughs: 6.5 (Watch Once) | imdb: 7.5
      wikipedia | who was involved?

Not high art but definitely worth a watch because it works, and you will laugh. The original Les Bronzés (literally, The Tanned Ones) may be a better movie, but it has fewer laughs. (Last viewed: July 2009)

Patrice Leconte was credited as writer and director in the following film.
At the time, he would have been about 30 years old.
French Fried Vacation DVDFrench Fried Vacation (Les Bronzés)
      1978 | France | Laughs: 5.0 (Watch Once) | imdb: 6.9
      wikipedia | who was involved?

This classic French comedy follows a batch of vacationers during their eight-day stay in a holiday village in Africa. As ever, some find it easy to hook up, some find it harder. Even with the distance of time, the situations feel very real, and they're funny to watch. The movie is also full of the pranks and entertainment you would expect on such a package vacation. It didn't make me laugh out loud, but I found it highly entertaining. The sequel (which takes place at a ski resort) is stronger in the laughter department. Not so the third installment.

Ma Femme S'Appelle Reviens VHSMa Femme S'Appelle Reviens
      1982 | France | Laughs: 3.6 (Light-Hearted) | imdb: 5.3
      who was involved?

A doctor whose wife recently left moves in next door to a woman who is having romantic troubles. If you think you already know what's going to happen (as I would if you told me this is the plot), you will be pleased to discover that the movie doesn't follow the expected formulas. I found this little film funny (but not hilarious) and delightfully surprising, unlike those comedies where the action runs by the numbers. (Last viewed: September 2013)

Mon Meilleur Ami DVDMy Best Friend (Mon Meilleur Ami)
      2006 | France | Laughs: 1.0 (Light-Hearted) | imdb: 6.7
      wikipedia | dmoz | who was involved?

A friendless man scrambles to find a "best friend" in order to win a bet. Apart from the presence of stand-up comedian Dany Boon, I'm not sure why this movie is classified as a comedy, as it is often sad and sometimes stressful, but neither hilarious nor even funny. That said, it is watchable, and I'm sure it has some insights about what constitues friendship—and what doesn't. (Last viewed: October 2012)

Les Grands Ducs DVDLes Grands Ducs
      1996 | France | Laughs: 0.0 (Just Awful) | imdb: 5.9
      who was involved?

The first fifteen minutes of this film are so excruciatingly bad that I had to give up in disgust. The plot apparently follows three seniors whose theatrical career has seen better days as they embark on a tour of small French towns with a low-quality play. The opening scenes were noisy and over-theatrical in a grand old French tradition—or perhaps it is a Franco-English tradition, as the same moronic display can be found in Monty Python's worst skits, to take only one example. Avoid at all cost. (Last viewed: December 2013)
