Elmaleh, a star of French romcoms and a pal of Jerry Seinfeld's who has appeared a number of times on Conan, is trying to break out in America with his Curb Your Enthusiasm-esque series where he plays the "Jerry Seinfeld of France." The problem, says Daniel Fienberg, is when Huge in France "is trying to be funny, it isn't very funny. When Huge in France is trying to be serious, it's occasionally quite funny, which isn't an insult because it's largely intentional. Even when it's amusingly unamusing, however, Huge in France still isn't quite good enough to justify further investment in what is yet another real-comic-as-semi-dramatic-version-of-themselves series that's less Curb Your Enthusiasm and more Dice meets Really Rob." ALSO: Huge in France is yet another autobiographical sitcom about a difficult jerk.
