Critic Reviews for French Immersion

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2)

Funny in both official languages, French Immersion is the story of career-conscious English Canadians who flock to a small Quebec town to meet a Tremblay and learn French.

October 7, 2011 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

An embarrassment from beginning to end, a silly, laugh-deprived farce designed to poke fun at an issue - the two solitudes and their language rights - that has as much currency as the length of Farley Mowat's beard.

October 6, 2011 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

The end result is a movie that often comes off as a pilot episode for a new CBC sitcom...

February 28, 2012 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

If this sounds silly, it is, but it's also very funny. Both English and French Canadians get to be the butt of the jokes.

October 7, 2011 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The clash between anglophones and francophones is territory ripe for comedy, but this laboured attempt at humour doesn't bear fruit.

Audience Reviews for French Immersion

A decent ensemble performance with interesting characters, but it unfortunately tends toward the way-too-cliche in the end: settling differences with a hockey game, for instance, (using jersey recycled from Bon Cop, Bad Cop... seriously), or the classic "get on the plane but at the last minute get off the plane" rom-com ending. Enjoyable for a while, with a couple of big laughs, even, but wears out before the end.
