Adventure in the world of scoundrels
6 April 2000 | by (Paris, France) – See all my reviews

High flying crooks know how to exploit naive idiots... The dialogues are witty and very funny but I am not sure they would translate well in any foreign language...

Paul Meurice is fab and the whole comedy is entertaining.
