From the writers of Camping sauvage – Yves Lapierre, Luc Déry and André Ducharme – comes a similarly misguided, gaudy comedy. Taking the form of a mockumentary, it tells the life story of an unscrupulous business tycoon, played one-dimensionally by Guy A. Lepage. He’s not the worst offender, though, since Claude Legault, Valérie Blais and much of the supporting cast deliver embarrassingly hammy performances. Filled with facile, witless digs at savage capitalism, political corruption and the like, L’Empire Bo$$é is as unsubtle a satire as it is unfunny. It’s Elvis Gratton XXX minus the scatological humour. Not much of an improvement if you ask me.
