Three greats of French cinema : Coluche, Gérard Depardieu and Claude Zidi are a prefect reason for watching this excellent comedy film.
In 'Inspector Blunder' it was just Coluche, Coluche and more Coluche everywhere. The great comic actor made his presence felt in all the scenes to such a large extent that even a bigger star like Gérard Depardieu had to content himself by playing the second fiddle. This film's best lines were written for Coluche who saw himself transformed from a shy policeman into a clever hero who would not stop at anything to salvage the reputation of Parisian police force. Director Claude Zidi received great support from his screen writing partner Jean Bouchaud to craft numerous hilarious scenes whose motto was to establish that there are many policemen who could be classified as bumbling idiots. Audiences can watch with interest how their methods might not be practical but they do help in bringing the results. When all is said and done, it is the results which matter the most. Apart from Coluche and Depardieu, actress Dominique Lavanant garnered ample praise for her role as a brave journalist who doesn't show any kind of fear in getting the better of a vicious gangster.
