I could write, shoot and edit a movie better than that crap in all of one day. That's not setting the bar very high.

Yet someone who's been living in Montréal for a few years and still doesn't understand french is a moron. He's missing half of what the city has to offer. Plus if you have a chance to learn another language easily, why not do it? I'm not the kind of nationalist who'll insult people because they can't speak french in Montréal, it's just that I hate that kind people, those who feel good with their intellectual poverty....(same with unilingual francos)

I went to see the movie on friday to be entertained and that's exactly what I got, entertainment.

Cheap version of Lethal Weapon? Maybe but who cares? I got my money's worth and I'd rather invest in our movie industry than the american movie industry.
Got some good laughs (some of the jokes are clichés but still funny), the action was good enough and while the story wasn't very good, you don't go see this kind of movie for the story now do you?

All in all, if you're looking for a fun movie, I strongly suggest it.

Well you just called them morons. Also not everybody has the time or is willing to make the effort. He probably can understand a bit of it but not enough to understand a movie. Also remember that learing french is alot more difficult then learning english and its alot easier to find a motivation to learn english then it is to learn any other language. That being said I agree with the general idea of your message that people who live in a place should at least try to get a basics of the local language.

simply put.. i went to the cineparc and it was really entertaining. Louis Josée Houde was funny... Patrick Huard was nice. The plot is for hockey fan cause you gotta understand some story about the #88 move and the #99 move. Was real fun and funny. I find it great that Quebec produce that kind of quality action-humour movie. The scene of action are almost like Hollywood scene.

It's true what you say, but kind of boring because it always comes up. If people don't want to learn French, they'll pay the price for it - financial, cultural and familial (because often English people move to get work, then you have to leave your family). If there are any young parents out there reading this, you better teach your child French or expect to lose them later in life.

Well, what I was trying to say I won't insult them in a "speak french or get out of Québec", xenophobic, semi-nazi way. But it's just not my kind of people. I like those who are curious about learning new things in general. As for french being harder to learn than english, every immigrant I know who learned french here told me it was as easy as learning english, at least for the basics. But french is a lot harder to master. With that said I don't know a lot of people who were able to master a language they learned while they were adults (even english)...

Yeah, I saw it at Fantasia too. It was awesome that Patrick Huard, Kevin Tierney, Eric Canuel and Lucie Laurier were there to give their thoughts and answer questions.

I agree or disagree depending on what you mean by "understand". Some people like myself are by no means fluent but still get by. I can read in french with little problem but my writing is terrible. I can understand when someone speaks so long as they speak clearly and don't rush or have a thick accent. I can speak french but will use english words every so often, more so if it is a topic that i've never had the oppurtunity to speak about in french (the time i went to french mechanic was hell, "bonjour, je besoin un nouveau..um...bumper et....un headlight"). Also I choose not to watch "star acadamie" or listen to "les cowboys frignants"

Am I a bad quebecer or not? Some people have told me no and some people have said yes. Either way I'm moving to Ontario, Alberta or New England anyway. La, je suis pas le gars anglophone qui peut pas parle francais assez bon, mais quelqu'un qui parle la francais plus bon que la plupart des gens.

that make any sense?

Yey, now I can watch tanned chicks with silicon boobs eat worms for a 15 minutes fame and understand how dumb they really are!! The world is mine!

Yes, speaking english helps when you're in a foreign country, and generally for knowledge partage... but that's about it. Try to learn foreing languages if you really want to open your horizons.

Well we dont all have time for that. How many languages do you speak? Anyway I'm happy with my french and my english. You're lucky you have time and energy for such things. Anyway english helps me comunicate with people of every culture so I guess I'll have to settle with that for now. But this thread shouldnt be about your issues with anglophones. It's about this cool/funny movie. Lets get back on track.

It's not about how many languages you speak.. just don't say that english leads to something better, while it mostly leads twards crappy pop music, crappy pop movies and crappy american culture.

uh, hum and as I predicted earlier in this thread ..it's a crappy movie.

For every Britney Spears there is a Louis Armstrong

For every Dude, Where's my car there is an American History X

For every National Enquirer there is a Catcher in the Rye

For all the crap it spews American culture has also been the most dynamic and creative culture of the past 100 years. No culture can approach the volume of high quality work coming out of the United States in almost every field over the past century and likely into the future.

Agreed.


As for your answer to my message, I'm not fluent in english either, but as long as you're able to communicate, that's fine.

BUT COME ON:

YOU DON'T WATCH STAR ACADÉMIE???? GO BACK TO ONTARIO YOU STUPID ANGLO!!!
