Film Preview: My Best Friend (2007)

Trailers (Due to age, may no longer be available)

Posters (Due to age, may no longer be available)

Poster Rating: C-

Review: Despite a humorous preview, the poster is horribly outdated. The two friendship-developing characters walking out of the frame of a bit of the Parisian skyline isn’t terribly interesting and the supporting character looking on bemusedly just doesn’t add much to the poster.

Trailer Rating: B+

Review: Although the trailer goes a great deal farther in highlighting scenes from the film than I prefer, I can’t help but be charmed by Daniel Auteuil and Dany Boon. The premise does seem a bit of a rehash, but the way it’s presented could provide some decent entertainment.

Oscar Prospects:

If the film is submitted by France, it could earn a nomination, but the film’s lack of absolute seriousness could hinder it. However, if The Barbarian Invasions can win the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, this one could as well if it has enough dramatic elements.
