User Reviews

One of the best comedies ever, the best French.
16 May 2000 | by (Beveren, Belgium) – See all my reviews

This film has the remarkable property that there aren't any boring pieces in it. It just brings you more than 2 hours of top-comedy, together with a fine scenario. The magical trio Louis de Funès, Bourvil and Gérard Oury make this film so unique. If you like this one, be sure to have seen Le Corniaud.
