I wanted to watch this movie because Coluche was the new king of comedy after De Funès and it happens in Paris in the 80s, a better time than actually! The movie starts really well because, as usual with Zidi, this rookie cop meets totally unexpected situations! It's all the more funny that it makes fun of cops and it's good change of wind ("naked gun" would follow this trail too...) Lavanant is really good as a courageous journalist and proves that we don't need ultra sexy babes in movies! Paris is resumed to the famous Quai Des Orfèvres, Champs Elysés, and Tower Eiffel district Then, Depardieu arrives as public enemy number 1: He plays well the malicious cool buddy but unfortunately, the movie then goes in a poor direction and except the hilarious moment with the air puppet, the ending is not as much good. That's why I would like to read the comics to discover if there is an alternative story!
