| pleasantly silly comedy that will make you laugh out loud
A pleasant comedy : silly, frothy and light-hearted. The characters tend to be caricatures rather than fully-rounded individuals and the story is unsubtle, but who cares, much shall be forgiven this movie because it doesn't take itself seriously. The actors are in fine mettle and the tongue-in-cheek nostalgia, complete with engagingly foolish costumes, adds considerably to the fun.

"Les cracks" contains more than a few scenes of cycling-related dirty pool. If you're an American and if you're still feeling guilty and angry about Lance 'Look at me, mama, now I'm going to cheat WITHOUT hands' Armstrong, rest assured that he wasn't an innovator who desecrated a pristine sport. Cheating and unsportive behaviour have been dogging the great cycle races, such as the Tour de France, since day one. Probably they will continue to do so until Judgment Day...
