French Friday (5)

French Friday is a weekly feature hosted by Charlotte at the Book on the Hill. We both live in France, so it's where we write about Frenchy bookish things.

So I was actually planning on interrupting my regularly scheduled French Friday programming today in favor of my New Moon pseudo-review and all, which I would have posted yesterday when I wrote it, but I had a blog tour to do. :-)

THEN, I saw this, and I decided, well, why not have a Twilight-themed French Friday? It's the trailer for New Moon, Tentation in French, dubbed over by the French voice actors. And it is HILARIOUS! What makes it so hilarious, you ask? Well, that would be the voices. I know that most of you don't speak French so won't be able to understand what is being said, but just LISTEN to Taylor's voice. It is SO not a Jacob voice. AT ALL! And Bella just sounds so overly feminine and dramatic. The dubbed thing really just doesn't work (which isn't a surprise, really, but Jacob's voice is even more hilarious than usual).

So watch and laugh. And I mention again, take special note of Jacob's voice.
And if you haven't already, check out my review of New Moon

And check out Charlotte's French Friday in which she talks about the Twilight books.

You're right. Jacob's voice is hysterical.

Alice's voice works well :)

Ah, the thrill of French dubbing... :)

You're right. Bella and Jacob do not work at all. I thought Edward was alright and agree with Juju about Alice.

The Bella voice did get one thing right...the gasping!

Uhm... I actually like Bella's voice here *hides face in shame*. It might be because I haven't seen the first movie yet, and I don't remember what Kirsten Stewart's real voice sounds like. I agree with you that Jacob's voice sounds a bit funny. Although, by the end of the trailer, it sort of grew on me. I think it sounds kind of sexy.
