A creaky, slapdash story, but some funny character chemistry and slapstick.
26 January 2001 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

The story is a fairly absurd little farce that doesn't really go anywhere, but it's possible to enjoy this as just a goofy buddy comedy with some good, irreverent slapstick. Given the lack of subtitles on the copy I watched, you might want to brush up your French first; the dialogue is fast and idiomatic. I missed a good deal of it.
