      Audience Member L'idée était bonne. Mais le scénario est mince, les dialogues aussi.... Et le jeu de Martin Drainville (et d'à peu près tout le monde) est difficile à regarder... Le genre de chose qui vieillit plutôt mal. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Canadian French film, about a man who is filmed 24x7 in Montreal, in order to boost local cable ratings. A fresh original concept; I could not turn away from it, despite the bad dubbing job. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Drôle, cave, divertissant. mais pas plus qu'un visionnement, svp.... Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Audience Member Une des meilleures comédies québécoise, et que dire de la scène du frigidaire .... Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member L'idee etait bonne, mais j'ai ete un peu decue... peut-etre avais-je trop d'attentes ;-) Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member Un de mes premiers contacts avec le cinéma québécois. J'aurais préféré voir Mon oncle Antoine... Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Read all reviews
