Big disappointment - Boudu Saved from Drowning review by JC

Spoiler Alert
19/08/2012

With totally unbelievable characters and plot, not even very funny, this film provoked only a few titters. Luckily it is quite short, otherwise we'd probably have switched it off before the end. With lots of slap and tickle,one particular scene was particularly offensive in which the wife of the lascivious Lestingois is set upon by the obviously mentally challenged and brutish Boudu who forces himself upon her, reinforcing the idea that when a woman says no she really means yes. Hardly a seduction. It shows how prevalent sexism was in that era. Rather unpleasant actually.

Old film, old values. - Boudu Saved from Drowning review by KB

Old-fashioned farce...

ordinary people caught up in an unplanned situation.

Boudu's craziness reminds me of Jim Carrey.

Not my favourite kind of film.
