Who « killed » the script editor (tv)
This is a french comedy i wanted to see very much because the brains behind it (Kad & Olivier) are funny and cool and also because the idea is highly original : in order to pay a tribute to American shows, the duo wanted to get the feeling of those production while making the movie in France ! So they had to find locations, props, frames that could feel American. This effort seems nearly achieved as we totally forget it's french in France.
However the big problem here is that the movie is a bit dull, slow and lacks energy. Unlike the infamous ZAZ movies, this one doesn't know how to pull the criminal investigation and loses itself in too much gags and too much convolution
At the end, the movie is just crazy to be crazy. For example, the health quest for the cop partner slows everything.
In conclusion, the effort made in production is a bit lost in a weak story. In that light, i think that their sequel is much better than this one !
