Roger sees red. And when Roger sees red, people get cut into tiny little pieces and buried in the yard. Luc and Marco are two Montréal comics on tour who have decided to make audience member Roger the butt of their jokes at one of their shows. Bad career move. Now Roger seeks revenge in a Jigsaw-From-"Saw" kind of way, and he'll open his act with the garden shear modified into what he now refers to as "The Ball Cutter." Ouch. Unless, of course, Luc and Marco can find Roger's sense of humor behind his steely, murderous, bloodthirsty eyes. SENSE OF HUMOR is a laugh-out-loud hilarious film about two hack comics trying their best not to be … well, two hacked comics. In order to save their own lives, Marco and Luc must train the humorless Roger to be funny so he can charm the woman he loves and take down the nemesis who picks on him. Will Luc and Marco be successful in their Cyrano-like attempts to teach Roger the art of joke-telling? Or will Roger bomb and be laughed at, instead of laughed with? Either way, Roger is going to kill. With some of the funniest performances of this year's Festival, SENSE OF HUMOR is one killer comedy. (In French with subtitles) – T.W.
