Sixth part of the Vacation franchise, which began in 1983, the comedy Long Live the Vacation tells the story of a father who surprises his wife and two sons by offering them to go back to Walley World, known as “the favorite amusement park of American families “. But to get there, they will have to cross the whole country.

It is certainly not always very fine, but we must admit that we laugh heartily at the adventures of the Griswold family, the duo composed of Ed Helms and Christina Applegate working wonderfully.

If you are fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, you will also be surprised to find in the cast a hilarious Chris Hemsworth, far from his role as Thor. Finally, let us note a string of cameos including those of Regina Hall, Michael Peña and Norman Reedus, Daryl Dixon from The Walking Dead series.

VERY BAD TRIP


Warner Bros. France

Released in theaters in 2009, the feature film The Hangover tells the story of three friends who, upon waking up from a well-watered bachelor party, realize that the fiancé has disappeared 40 hours before the wedding ceremony. They will then have to ignore their hangover and collect their bits of memories to understand what happened.

The hangover, that very particular morning state that follows a drunken party, is at the heart of the comedy The Hangover. But it’s not a typical hangover, as director Todd Phillips explains: “Drinking until you lose consciousness and waking up in the morning in the middle of dozens of empty bottles is nothing extraordinary. But we wanted to push it to sheer delirium. This film is not the trivial story of ‘a hangover is the story of the mother of all hangovers! “

“Comedy is even better when it has a heart. The viewer of this Hangover must feel that our guys are really attached to each other so that the film does not boil down to a series of gags”, then adds Todd Phillips. “We sought to explore the spontaneous humor that arises from male friendship, the bonds of complicity that men form, and the embarrassment that sometimes results …”

Proof of the total delirium of this Very Bad Trip which won a very big public success? The film, worn by the trio Bradley Cooper / Ed helms / Zach Galifianakis, also sees pass in front of the camera a baby, a tiger, a hen and … Mike Tyson.

FATAL (2010)


Universal Pictures International France

In 2010, Michaël Youn, for his first stint behind the camera, decided to land on the big screen the bling-bling rapper Fatal Bazooka, created a few years earlier in the TV show of the Morning Live. The result, in the form of a masterstroke for a first production, is the comedy Fatal, a biting and hilarious satire of the show biz scene.

The fictional character of Fatal Bazooka, in real stores, had sold more than 500,000 copies of the album Did you see, taken by the improbable tube Put your balaclava on. The film tells what would have become of this rapper unlike any other if he had sold … 15 million! Become a huge star, he is the undisputed N ° 1. Apparently, everything is fine, except that in reality Fatal, who makes believe that he grew up in the ghetto when he was born in a small village in Savoy, does not know where he is going …

For a first try behind the camera, Fatal is a hell of a success. Michaël Youn’s crazy and schoolboy feature film is frankly funny, happily walking in the footsteps of the Farrelly brothers and Ben Stiller, his assumed influences. Better, even if it runs out of steam a little in its last third, it presents the rare quality, for a comedy, to make people laugh … over time!

Very dense, this Fatal in fact hardly ever lowers the rhythm and puts the zygomatics to the test, destroying all-out the world of show biz and rap with a delightful ferocity … The public had then responded in theaters , with more than 1.2 million spectators attending. What if you (re) discover the film today?
