Gondry has such an incomparable understanding of the way in which strange and unexpected sights can tickle you. What he sometimes lacks as a filmmaker is the awareness that he can tickle an audience to death.
Gondry has made a live action cartoon with a rather patchy plot and flat characters, most of whom (but Tatou and Duris especially) are way too old to be playing characters who might seem immature even if they were played by teenagers.
Sy, Maiga and the others play second fiddle not only to the leads but especially to the visual effects, which are indeed impressive, even if quite a few are reminiscent of Gondry's previous films or musicvids.
