A joy to watch due to the leading men who are both talented and have a great connection. The character that Omar Sy plays is a bit far fetched. It's a Hollywood spin on the down and out black guy meets terrific opportunity to work for a rich white guy. He is so handsome and fun to watch that it's hard to find fault but the corny and unbelievable scenes that come one after another make it less than a terrific movie. It could have been great if only they hadn't succumbed to typical Hollywood crap of sappy, cliched scenes such as breaking into dance at Philippe's birthday party and having Driss's nephew come to rescus hom from his terrible life of riches and convince him to go back to living in a tenement with no income- really? Somehow I don't think either of these scenes were believable.
But other than a few complaints of silliness such as this it was an entertaining feel-good movie.
What a bunch of abusive crap this movie is. About nothing and so full of violence, rage, absurd tales of wild beasts and child abuse it was tiring to watch on every level.
We should have walked out but I kept thinking it would come together. There was no point to this ridiculous story that went nowhere and was full of holes. A must miss!
