Worth a watch.

If you're a fan of any of Jean-Pierre Jeunet's other films, you're going to enjoy this as well. Many familiar faces reappear in this light-hearted prank/revenge film. It's more of the same with a little less charm, which can be attributed to the fact that Dany Boon is a flavorless lead actor when compared to Audrey Tautou, yet I still found myself rooting for the success of the convoluted schemes that he & his off-beat team concoct.

This film is rather predictable, but you really get some good laughs, excellent cinematography & lovable characters to keep you highly entertained throughout this film.

Genius

Micmacs is the story of a man who is brought to warming himself for a night's rest with a cardboard box, which he discovers was the fault of two unscrupulous arms dealers, through the repeating memes of a pair of symbols that he encounters throughout his life. This story is not so much of Danny Boon's character's path to revenge, but a subtle, sweet taste of giving just desserts with support the help of a rag-tag family that he comes across through street performing. This family is the soil for the embracing of the heartwarming elements of a scrapyard circus family that embrace their talents and use them in a ingenious plot to help their newfound brother.

Paired up again, Jean Pierre Jeunet and Guilliaume Laurent put together a tender chain of events at a good pace. Each scene almost felt like it was at the same level; they stray from intense action to keep you glued to the screen. Light hearted humor, witty thrown-together devices, eye-catching surreal visuals, and clever plot points do the work while paying homage to each of the zany family members throughout. While it may be unappealing and dragging to some to not have any variation in the feel of pace, this movie isn't designed to get the adrenaline flowing through your body, but to let you sit back and cheerfully bring you to the point of applaud while the plot builds itself.
