Le Placard est souvent drôle, un mélange entre caricature du monde du rugby (on notera la présence de Vincent Moscato), dialogues réjouissants souvent déclamés par un excellent Gérard Depardieu et une intrigue simple et concise. Mais Le Placard se complaît aussi un peu trop souvent dans une histoire dramatique absolument inintéressante au possible entre Daniel Auteuil et Alexandra Vandernoot qui y joue son ex-femme. A chaque fois qu'elle ou Stanislas Forlani (qui y joue son fils) est à l'écran, le film est à la limite du supportable. Heureusement, ce n'est qu'une petite fraction du film, surtout dans la deuxième partie, ce qui fait que ce Placard n'est finalement pas un mauvais divertissement du tout.

It did get me laughing at some parts but after I finished watching it, I don't find any true meaning to this movie. I guess this is just a lighthearted movie for those with some time to kill.

Smart & hilarious, why can't American gay flicks be as good?

To prevent losing his job, Francois decided to pretend to be gay with the help from his industrial psychologist neighbour. Life goes from bad to good as he does so, but with hilarious result. Le Placard is a smart comedy to satirize the affirmative action policy. I especially love the set design, it was simply exquisite.

Great French comedy, in the fashion of great French films. Quiet funny.

A delightful funny comedy with Francois Pignon (the dull accountant) learns that he will be fired soon - the story starts when the office thinks he is gay. Great to watch.

Nice little french comedy with a great cast & a loveable story of a man who's mistaking as being a gay employee in a conservative corporate. Some well written dialogues & great actors will give you a great time in this intelligent & solid entertainment.

Scénario complètement délirant! Jeux d'acteurs considérables, j'ai beaucoup aimé. Drôle au boutte et aucun temps mort.

A cute little movie about a sticky situation. Auteuil is becoming a favorite actor.

A bit more crass and vulgar than the dinner game, the humour is less sophisticated, but it works better as a movie.

A charming French comedy with bad results, not surpassing the usual European modern standards. Avoid it.
