The death of Coluche at 42 in an accident was a tragedy for French film lovers. The man had a short, flabby body and a face that never stood out in a crowd. Nathan Lane would be a contemporary equivalent.
Here he's a detective fresh out of the academy (lowest mark in class) who gets the assignment of bodyguard to a spoiled rich girl reporter (wonderful Dominique Lavanant). She's been interviewed on TV and has questioned the virility of a mobster (Depardieu) who then kidnaps her. The usual satirical jabs at the police run throughout the film. It's not as good as Tchao pantin but it's diverting.
