André Hunebelle was an odd-job man ,always seeing which when the wind would blow when he made his movies;hence his eclecticism ,so to speak:comedies,swashbucklers (genre in which his gave his most pleasant works ),spy thrillers ,spoofs ....
"Ma Femme Est Formidable" belongs to the "Theatre De Boulevard " genre and conveys all it its clichés: husbands and wives ,lovers, intrusive mother-in -law ,curious concierges (the obligatory Pauline Carton),all happening in a bourgeois milieu : dentist ,artists,hint at a marquis , mom-in-law has a game of bridge planned and everybody meets for the Winter sports ,a luxury at the time.
All is borrowed in the exceptionally poor screenplay :the scene when Fernand Gravey takes revenge on his supposedly unfaithful wife strongly reminds you of Raimu in "La Femme Du Boulanger"(the baker's wife),the statues replacing La Pomponnette,the female cat.The trick of the costume ball has been used a hundred times or more.
Louis De Funès appears a a tourist who finds it hard getting a room in the hotel managed by Noel Roquevert who was featured in countless fifties French films.
