Lucky guys, maybe, but not for the audiences.

You have here five short stories of lucky folks in several kind of schemes. It is lousy, not funny at all. In resume a total waste of everything, talent for the actors and time for the audiences. I am not surprised that is not commented yet. Jean Girault is not here at his best, unlike some years later in the films with Louis de Funès in LE GENDARME series. And concerning Philippe de Broca, he will be better in L'HOMME DE RIO the next year, starring Jean Paul Belmondo.

Only the last short tale, starring the same Louis de Funès is worth.

Forget the rest of it.

Only for rare french comedies from the sixties. Good music score although, in the mood of this era.
