With such a deep cast and a potentially quite comical premise, one could have expected something better than this pseudo comedy where nothing works. The movie boils down to a completely disjointed succession of uninteresting scenes, often badly filmed, where the humor is off and where almost all the gags fall flat. The actors try to keep the movie afloat, though their performance are quite uneven: Isabelle Nanty for example is particularly good while Kev Adams is just plain bad. But, overall, how can you blame them when the script and the mise-en-scène are so weak ? With Les Profs, the French cinematographic creation hits rock bottom...
Having beaten all the records with its humbling 12% success rate in the baccalauréat, the French national academic qualification, the Jules Ferry High School has earned the reputation of the worst high school in France. Now, to succeed where conventional methods and the best tutors have failed, there is one last chance to avoid closure of the institution: recruit the crème de la crème of the country's worst teachers to achieve a pass rate above 50% within one academic year. However, the stakes are high, and the future of the students is hanging by a thread. Will Jules Ferry's magnificent seven manage to save the day? —Nick Riganas
