      Aender S The best Christmas film ever made, stuffed with a ton load of quotable lines. Probably also the best comedy ever made. "C'est cela, oui." Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/11/24 Full Review Audience Member French humor at it's finest, but you gotta be French. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member Classic from start to finish, this film is very well written, wonderfully acted by a bunch of very talented and incongruous actors that have gone on having brilliant careers, and directed by one of the most talented storyteller in France during the 80's/90's. The film is a riot, the dialogues are cult and most people today can still easily reference them here and there. Part of the popular French culture, this film is a timeless comedy that deserve to be seen and appreciated by new generations. Rarely films can achieve such cult status, but this one is one of them and if you watch it, you will understand why. It's funny but it's also very good. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member French people watch this movie very often especially during Christmas time. Very funny movie, good French humour! Definitely a classic. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member Santa Claus Is CUMMIN To Town!!
