Storyline

Victor Garnier a perdu presque toutes ses économies en suivant les indications du directeur de la banque. Maintenant il n'a plus de sous. Mais une idée géniale lui vient à l'esprit: si la banque lui a volé son argent, lui-même volera la banque, creusant une galerie à partir de sa cave avec l'aide de tous les gens de sa famille. Mais les problèmes qui surviennent sont nombreux: comment creuse-t-on, où envoie-t-on la terre et ainsi de suite. En plus, chaque membre de la famille a ses problèmes, on ne doit pas susciter de soupçons, il y a un policier fouineur et des parents inattendus débarquent... est-ce qu'il y arrivera? Written by Baldinotto da Pistoia

Who could suspect the shovel-wielding,mining helmet wearing nervous guy?
28 October 2007 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

After a guy foolishly trusts his money with a downright evil bank owner(who tricks him out of it with bogus stock tips), he tries to get it back the shortest way: by digging a tunnel from his basement to the vaults. Lucky for him, he lives nearby. Of course this drags a lot of hilarious situations along with it. Well, some I guess. I'm probably used to the other type of comedies that bring gags of the same or lower quality like, every second. Still, this old-timer baffoonery can be appreciated, because De Funes is professional about it. He's better than the material he's given. He's above these types of things,but then again, they suit him brilliantly. This is not a one man show,but it seriously should be. This has more padding than McDonalds-beef. One bothering plot hole: there's no way anybody could think anybody other than them robbed the bank. It's just so obvious, we have scenes in which they ask about security, or in which the kid is ever so curious what the vault looks like, and they have a motive, and they can constantly be seen with massive amounts of shovels or covered with dirt, and they actually ask a guy about digging tunnels. I know, I know, it's just a funny little movie.
