News: Just For Laughs Film Festival

In case you were wondering, the Just For Laugh Festival in Montreal is not just about presenting stand-up comedies. It's also about presenting to the public feature films, shorts and screenings of upcoming TV series. In fact, from July 16 to 26, the Just For Laugh Film Festival will be rolling. What's in the festival's line-up?

Now, I'll talk about the line-up of the festival. Of course, I'll just talk about a few things that interest me.

OSS 117: Rio ne répond plus: This film will open the festival. It's a French film (a comedy to be more precise) about a French spy from the 1950s. I saw the trailer once when I was at a screening of Xavier Dolan's J'ai tué ma mère. I just hope that the film will be as funny as the first one.

Humpday:A comedy about two straight men who try to be in a porn films, which is considered as an "art project". For those who didn't know, the film was presented at the Sundance Film Festival. Let's just hope that the film will not be vulgar.

World's Greatest Dad:This is the latest film from Robin Williams and it was also presented at the latest Sundance Film Festival. What? You're saying that you never heard of it? So have I. Nevertheless, I read a few descriptions of the film and it looks smart. All in all, I'm sure a friend of mine should be pleased since he always complain that critics always demolish comedies.

Anyway, these are a few movies that will be shown at the Festival. For the rest of the line-up, you can also check on the link that I left in this post. Besides, notice that Adam Sandler's latest film Funny People will also be presented. As for Canadian stuffs, be sure to check Les doigts croches, the screening of two episodes of the upcoming TV series The Foundation.

Finally, don't forget to check the schedule!
