Audience Reviews for Les Boys

Les Boys can be seen as the Quebec version of Slapshot, it's a hockey film for guys. Each Monday a bunch of men join other men in a beer league Hockey team called Les Boys. This is a pretty film unlike those dreadful seperatist advocating Pierre Falardeau films, Elvis Gratton. These movies despite being quite crude and vulgar have something that other films in Quebec cinema are missing out on, Class. This film doesn't deal with politics of any sort and is pure enjoyment. A wild crazy film of a bunch og guys with totally different backgrounds playing hockey. Les Boys is a prime example of a Quebec comedy that illiminates the idea of using the issue of the separation of Quebec as a plot device for comedy. Most films in that province use that issue as a plot device and in the end it gets fucking tiring. Les Boys is different its a smart and fun comedy.
