      Audience Member Presented at the Virginia French Film Festival as a "simple" movie, with a rather straightforward scenario and simple direction, Le fils à Jo transcends the television screen for which it was originally made and finds itself belonging firmly on the silver screen. Indeed, simple but very much a story of the complexities of life which in it of itself is not all that simple. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member It's good to see a bad French movie once in a while just to get some perspective. Nothing really terrible about this movie. Just that it's cliched, contrived, vacuous, banal and sentimental, very much like the cheap English comedies like Billy Elliot or Brassed Off. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member Philippe Guillard... excellent Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member Un film assez mineur si on ne comptait que le côté technique de l'oeuvre (montage, effets, musique, plans...). Mais là où Le Fils à Jo surprend, c'est bien par ses acteurs, tout simplement impeccables; ainsi que par son humour qui fuse durant toute la durée du film. Une bien bonne surprise! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member film gentillet pas naze pour un premier essai mais trop pathos pour etre credible Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member Impossible d'etre honnete pour le coup, tant le gars Guillard impose la sympathie et son casting recele de grands moments de bonheur (pour ceux qui connaissent le rugby, le vrai de vrai Christophe Porcu joue dans le film! et il y a plein d'autres surprises) L'histoire est bourree de cliches et de bons sentiments mais filme sans pretention et avec surtout beaucoup d'humanisme.
