I initially didn't want to see this movie because I didn't love the first one (allthough I liked parts of it) - bienvenue chez les chtis - and because the theme seemed to be kind of the same as in BCLC.
I should have gone with my initial feelings, this movie is bad.
Where the humor in the first one was indeed funny and original in "RAD" (rien a declarer) it's a "schoolyard - puberty - bad parts from Ali G." kind of humor. Sometimes I felt as if this movie was a costly produced school project. Some Ideas (that (if well executed) would have been a bit funny) were shown in such an exaggerated manner (e.g. time-wise) that I laughed in the beginning. But after some minutes of depictions of ONE single joke I wanted to cry.
"RAD" lacks a good storytelling, the filmmaker should have realized that it is not enough to string together some "half-baked" ideas.
The whole French - Belgian thing was very badly realized and the acting was also done poorly (except Francois Damiens was funny in a quiet disturbing way).
To sum up I'd say that: "This movie makes you laugh because of how bad it is and because you feel obliged to pursue its comedic intend."
