Critic Reviews for Les beaux gosses (The French Kissers)
The John Hughes-style teen comedy has been revived in France. The French Kissers is funny because it rings true, in any language.
A zits-and-all portrait of the weird, wild and incredibly awkward time of adolescence, Gallic laffer "The French Kissers" plants plenty of heart-wrenching gags right in the smacker.
...costar Noémie Lvovsky ("Actresses") is a hysterical high point as Hervé's mom who has an unflappable interest in his sex life whether it be singular or plural.
If there is a message... it's that boys are dumb, self-involved, insensitive and more obsessed with the idea of sex than the reality of it.
The script covers the same things as most teen movies -- getting together, breaking up, being horrible, making up, yelling at your parents -- but Sattouf makes it fresh with credible performances from these non-actors.
Audience Reviews for Les beaux gosses (The French Kissers)
So charming! Fresh, credible and painfully funny. The French approach to the hormonally charged coming of age tale might be more realistic than its American T&A laden counterparts, but that's not to say Les Beaux Gosses skimps on the obligatory gross-out moments and bodily fluids that are as much a part of growing up as zits and rebellion.
An often slapstick, too close for comfort look at growing up.
I was surprised by how hilarious this was, I actually laughed right through the whole thing. It reminded me of a French "Superbad", though different. All of these kids seemed like total dorks, it was actually refreshing to watch at teen movie where the kids aren't like little supermodels. It also had a very 80's feel to it, though it is set in present day. Would highly recommend it.
Maybe Riad Sattouf is known in France for comic strips, but he did a real work of art with this teenagers comedy. Raw and funny, non-suptile and sad at moments, this movie shows you the love exploration and fantasies of two teenager friends, actually holders of a loosers titles... A lot of bad kissing, pimples, socks, etc... and all of that is so funny that you'll enjoy every minute of it! Refreshingly invigorating!
