Baptiste 'Bebel' Lavalle and his classmates in Versailles' private high-school Louis XIV enjoy their carefree life enough to deliberately fail the exams, a national record of zero ... See full summary »
"Les sous-doués" is a french comedy movie in which we watch a group of classmates who want to take the baccalaureate. But to succeed this they have to study very hard and they are not so much fan of studying. Also they belong to the high class so they go to a private high-school the Louis XIV and there they have very strict teachers who are willing to help them with any way to succeed to their exams and of course to gain reputation from their results. In this they will find some difficulties and there is the point where all the hilarious moments start to happen.
I really liked this movie because it belongs to those kind of movies in which you never stop to laugh and every moment something really funny happens. I also liked this movie because of the interpretation of Daniel Auteuil who played as Baptiste Lavalle and he was simply outstanding and I believe that in this movie every interpretation was equally good because each interpretation had a different part in this success. Every person who played in this movie had his own part in this and when all of these parts are combined the result which came out was simply the best.
Finally I have to say that "Les sous-doués" is one of the funniest french movies that I have ever seen and I strongly recommend it. I believe that the reason that was so good is because it does not exceed the limits of the comedy and stays on it and do not tire the audience.
