Storyline

Brice, a motherless super rich 30-year-old teenager fancies himself a trendy surfer. Only he never stepped out of Nice where the sea remains desperately calm and flat. Brice awaits a giant wave like the one he knows happened in 1979. In the meantime, what he lacks in technique he successfully hides and compensates in style. Yellow T-shirt, yellow hair, yellow parties, he created his own little world where he "axes" people. One morning, his father is sent to jail and "Brice from Nice" is left penniless. He first decides to find out about that thing called "work" (one of his friends does it) at a local restaurant, but then decides robbing a bank is way easier. While escaping after a failed attempt, he meets Marius who needs money for foot surgery. His new best buddy has an idea how to get it: all it takes is for Brice to win the $100,000 prize at the "world underground surf cup". It would "completely" help if Brice had surfed at least once in his life. Written by Greg Philip <greg_philip@hotmail.com>

La Fondation Brice dédie son oeuvre à tous les animaux qui ne peuvent pas casser. Style de limaces, les lucioles, les hérissons dont les pattes avant ont été complètement écrasées par des voitures. [Roughly: The Brice Foundation dedicates its work to all the animals which cannot mock. Such as slugs, fireflies, hedgehogs whose front legs have been squashed by cars.] See more »

Very bad movie
4 February 2006 | by adon73See all my reviews

It's no wonder people left the room at the movies after 20 minutes of this. This is the worst movie ever. The few parts that MIGHT have been funny were all recycled from his previous sketches. There's no real story to speak of, though the movie tries to convince you that there is some psychology at work. You can tell the parts that were supposed to be funny but failed miserably. First you will wonder why you don't understand what the heck is happening, then you'll realize that there's nothing to understand, I feel sorry for anyone who saw this at the movies. Worst movie ever. Ever.

Ever.
