Bienvenue chez les Chtis DVDWelcome to the Sticks (Bienvenue chez les Ch'tis)
      2008 | France | Laughs: 8.0 (Laugh and Smile) | imdb: 7.1
      wikipedia | who was involved?

The manager of a post office in the South of France dreams of getting transferred to a town by the Mediterranean. Instead, he gets transferred to the very North of France, which to him and his family sounds like the ultimate nightmare. This is a great movie. It delivers laughter at a solid pace, and the story is excellent. At least half of the humor stems from the very odd accent spoken by the congenial northerners, and you may need a good command of French to fully enjoy that. Nevertheless, even if it were half the movie that it is, this would still be a very decent watch. I was impressed to learn that Dany Boon, who was excellent in The Valet, was not only one of the main actors, but also wrote and directed the movie. (Last viewed: October 2012)

A hypochondriac inserts himself into the life of his doctor, driving him mad, and his wife even more. (If you like this kind of plot, check out What About Bob.) The set-up took was unhurried and was hilarious. About halfway through the movie, when they started to inject a plot, I braced myself for the end of the laughs as that's typically what happens—more action, less comedy. But they managed to keep the fun until the end, with few flat moments in between. I can't say that I laughed hard, but I laughed consistently. It had been a long time since a comedy had made me laugh so much. Don't miss this one. (Last viewed: August 2014)

I watch many comedies, and sometimes I must endure a long streak without laughing once. This movie broke such a streak. If it doesn't have the highest imdb rating, that's probably because it suffers from high expectations by people who loved Dany Boon's Welcome to the Sticks. But from my standpoint as a volume consumer of comedy films, this was the best romantic comedy I'd seen in a while, and it made me laugh. It's very well put together, it has a clever plot, and there's no overacting—a rare treat in this genre. Ah, the plot? It involves a family where first marriages seem to be cursed… so that one of the daughters, eager to marry her boyfriend of ten years, decides to resort to a sham marriage-and-divorce before tying the knot for good. I will admit with shame that early on, some of the pleasure stems from seeing someone who appears at first to be the prototype of the attractive haughty woman suffer. But there is more, and the comedic power is well shared among several actors of the fine cast. If you enjoy French comedies, don't miss this one. (Last viewed: July 2014)

      2006 | France | Laughs: 6.6 (Watch Once) | imdb: 6.6
      wikipedia | who was involved?

In need of raising money to help out the woman of his dreams, a man who parks cars outside a restaurant for a living is persuaded to cohabit with a top model. Several occasions to laugh in this film, and none to stop smiling. Nearly made the laugh-out-loud category. The film features two brilliant French comedians—Gad Elmaleh and Dany Boon. By the director who made the laugh-out-loud classic The Dinner Game (in fact the main character have the same name, François Pignon). (Last viewed: Oct 2010 September 2011)

      wikipedia | who was involved?

On the border between Belgium and France, a French guard is in love with the sister of a Belgian colleague, who harbors a deep hatred for the French. There are enough laughs to keep you watching, but the sub-plots are weak and the cast unequal. The Belgian guard's anger is loud, ugly and certainly not comical. Dany Boon balances him and makes the movie worth watching once. (Last viewed: October 2012)

      2006 | France | Laughs: 4.2 (Watch Once) | imdb: 5.5
      wikipedia | who was involved?

A man lets a real estate agent convince him to buy a country home not far from Paris. He overpays, borrows too much, hires the wrong crew to renovate—and everything goes downhill from there. I didn't enjoy the first hour. All the bad things that kept happening to that poor guy made me cringe, so for me it felt more like horror than comedy. After he hits rock bottom, some real comedy starts to happen, and I had a couple of good laughs towards the end. (Last viewed: August 2014)

Welcome to the South DVDWelcome to the South (Benvenuti al Sud)
      2010 | Italy | Laughs: 4.1 (Watch Once) | imdb: 6.5
      wikipedia | who was involved?

The manager of an Italian post office gets transferred to the south of the country, which he and those around him picture to be a land of criminals and idiots. This is the Italian adaptation of the excellent Welcome to the Sticks. Many of the scenes are nearly identical, but the dialog at key moments has often been cut in half, making the movie about half as funny as the original. But it's still funny. It's also a treat to spend time in a beautiful Italian village without going through the hassle of getting on an airplane. (Last viewed: October 2012)

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)

This is an artsy movie in a carnival-character, circus bohemian, cartoonish kind of way. That was never my thing, and I didn't laugh, so I didn't enjoy the film. But I can see how it would appeal to some people I know, because in that style, it is well made. (Last viewed: November 2012)
