Funny and entertaining new installment of Gendarmes series, this time in N.Y.
31 March 2009 | by See all my reviews

This second sequel deals about the Sergeant Marechal Ludovic Cruchot(Louis De Funes),Lieutenant chief adjutant Jerome(Michael Galabru) and Marichal remaining(Jean Lefevre,Grosso,Modo,Christian Marin)are appointed for an International Congress of Gendarmerie in N.Y. They aboard a cruise and his festive daughter Nicole(Genevieve Grad) as stowaway. Nicole has a little too much at the Big Apple and the Gendarmes suffer a shaky ground.There she knows an Italian Carabinieri and a journalist(Alan Scott).

One of the best of Ludovic Cruchot series packs simple humor, slapdash,rip-roaring and lots of fun. Louis De Funes , as always steals the show, he stooges, dances, makes acrobatics and pulls faces and grimaces.Marvelous Genieveve Grad as feisty and likable daughter.The highlights are a brilliant and frenetic choreography about a dancing between Jets and Sharks bands, similarly to West Side Story and Cruchot in middle of the gangs; plus Ludovic playing baseball as pitcher and catcher; besides appears the customary nun driving in N.Y. Known soundtrack leitmotif by Raymond Lefevre used as musical background when the Gendarmes are parading along the city and habitual final march in Saint Tropez. The motion picture is lively filmed by series' director , Jean Girault and based on the characters created by Richard Balducci. It's followed by various sequels: Gendarme get married, Gendarme in balade, Gendarmes and the creatures of outer space and Gendarme and the Gendarmettes. If you like Funes' crazy acting, you'll enjoy this one because he 's overacting with amount mimic gesticulation. The movie is a Funes recital, it's a farce by the master comic to be liked for his fans.
