Made me laugh, a lot!
14 August 2012 | by imdb-4269See all my reviews

I was curious after seeing the previews and there I sat as the theatre went dark and the show started on screen, thinking to myself "I hope this does not suck". I was very happy to see that not only had I not been fooled by the previews, but they actually represented the movie quite well.

I laughed, I giggled and then I laughed and laughed again. If you go in expecting a great movie: this is not what it is! This is a beautiful light hearted comedy just like the comic strip was. True to its origins.

I left the theatre feeling the same way I felt when I finished one of the comic strips: happy and content.

@Alain Chabat: bravo! et merci pour tous ces rires. (which translates to "thanks for all the laughs")
