Following up a breakout hit that scored a lining 12 million admissions in France and grossed upwards du $174 million an international is no necessarily année easy task. Marqué when that hit is a dopey high-concept comedy referred to as Serial mauvais Weddings, about a racist couple whose 4 daughters marry 4 minority homme (an Arab, a Jew, année African and année Asian — insert “walk right into a bar” canular here), the la norme of achievement isn’t all that high.

The great news, then, is that Serial mauvais Weddings 2 (Qu’est-ce qu’on a (encore) je faisais un bon dieu?) feels like a slight improvement conditions météorologiques the life movie, moving a couple of mild laughs amid a similar onslaught ns overwrought gags, over-the-top performances and “can’t we tous just get along?” messaging meant to lure Frenchies right into theaters sauce soja they have the right to chortle at their own recadrer differences — if not at your countrymen’s implicit racism. Based conditions météorologiques opening numbers, with thé movie raking in 3 million viewers in 10 days, it looks like auto filmmakers will have their wedding cake et eat cette again, too.


In the original cinématicien (released in 2014), vet comic actor croyant Clavier play a bigoted but somewhat likeable notaire named Claude Verneuil who resides in a loire Valley mansion and is married to auto equally bigoted marié (Chantal Lauby). Thé hitch was that thé white couple’s 3 lovely daughters — oiseau (Julia Piaton), isabelle (Frederique Bel) and Segolene (Emile Caen) — had actually respectively married the Jewish David (Ary Abittan), thé Algerian Rachid (Medi Sadoun) et the Chinese Chao (Frederic Chau). The icing nous the wedding cake (sorry) was that their youngest daughter, location (Elodie Fontan), was about to marry thé Ivoirian Charles (Noom Diawara).

All things, de course, finished well, through Claude and Marie learning to arrêter worrying et love your ethnic sons-in-law. In auto sequel, the couple sets out conditions météorologiques a monthlong visit à their new families in Israel, Algeria, China and the cream color Coast, seulement un to venir home longing pour France again. (Cue a shot du them stuffing their affronter with brie et pâté.) thé hitch this temps is the their daughters aren’t seul married à “foreigners” marqué are planning à move to étranger countries à la personal or professional reasons, leave Claude and Marie in a major bind.

This prompts one ns the movie’s more amusing sequences, whereby the duo desperately pays la fin a bunch de locals venir sell David, Rachid, Chao et Charles nous the charm of french living. There’s a pretty great scene ns them touring a winery with an African man hired de Claude to advertise his region’s cultural diversity. And another une where Claude is encouraged that his Afghan gardener is a suicidaire bomber, even si it ends through a incroyable banana-peel-level gag ns the former smacking thé latter through a shovel. Doing!

Some critics have taxed the Weddings franchise with racism since the film seem venir be saying that everyone — white, black, French, Arab — is a peu of a racism at heart. Cible the movie also aller on to démontrer (in an all-too excruciatingly obvious way that reeks du opportunism, cible still) the anyone, consisting of bona fide bigots choose Claude et Marie, have the right to learn to move past their prejudices et accept est différent colors et cultures.

It’s possibly wishful thinking, marqué the filmmakers space at the very least smart enough à make thé old-fashioned Claude auto brunt of most jokes, with his Ivoirian counterpart, Charle’s father, Andre (Pascal Nzonzi), comes in at a fermer la porte second when he’s unable to accept his daughter’s nuit marriage. Every Weddings movie basically tries to attack stereotypes par showing how silly they are, even if some ns the jokes are so bord that they nearly undermine the discourse. (Cue thé scene of Chao purchase nunchaku et Shuriken in a weapons shop — although noter that he’s doing soja because he’s afraid du racist attacks in Paris.)

One problematic visage of both pics is thé character of David, that all-too conveniently lives up to the clichy of the flamboyant Sephardic Jew obsessed with making money and spending it on bling-bling cars et clothing. Unlike the other homme — Chao is a successful investment banker, Rachid a secular criminal lawyer and Charles a significant actor — conditions météorologiques never really see a flipside to David the goes against his stereotype, et he’s constantly trying to come up with, then failing venir pull off, a nouveau get-rich scheme. (In auto film’s defense, characters like David have appeared in french comedies parce que le some time, specifically in auto highly popular Would ns Lie à You? series.)

Perhaps much more troubling is the fact that both this et the last movie look choose they to be thrown ensemble in a matter de days — development, production et editing included. They’re overlit, overacted and overtly shoddy when cette comes to auto plotting, v too numerous throwaway jokes et a mise-en-scene that’s both eye-burningly glitzy and utterly banal. In terms de the filmmaking, Serial mauvais Weddings looks choose a mauvais wedding video fabriqué with lots of français television funding. What peut être ultimately be most répugnant about these movies is not what they’re trying à say, cible how they to speak it.
