Did You Know?

Trivia

There are two German dubbed versions for this film. The reason for this is that the original dubbing (supervised by Rainer Brandt) which was used for the theatrical showing of the movie was drastically different from the original version in terms of humor and vulgarity, so that the German TV ordered a new language track for the TV premiere of the movie which resembles the language and atmosphere of the original version of the movie much closer.

Goofs

In the scene where Campana and Perrin are eating breakfast at the airport, after Perrin puts salt on his meal he lights a cigarette. As the shots switch from facing Perrin and facing Campana, the cigarette switches hands (from Perrin's right to his left respectively). See more »

Quotes

François Perrin: [Campana has just realized that Arbal, the man they're looking for, was in the gambling club they just left] Okay, you have no memory for faces; it's no tragedy.

The only big wrinckle you'll have watching it... will be on your lips.
5 August 2000 | by (Geneva, Switzerland) – See all my reviews

This is THE masterpiece of funniness. Trust me, the big winner trio (Depardieu, Richard and Veber) shows one more time his talent. On one hand Pignon/Richard is the unluckiest man on earth, all the things you don't even think about happen to him and on the other one there is Depardieu, a cartesian private detective who doesn't believe in fate or luck, he disagrees with these concepts. Actually, by meeting Pignon, his entire life will be turned up side down because they must work together to find Pignon's Headmaster's daughter who was kidnapped in Venezuela. The worse thing will happen to the Laurel-and-Hardy-like team. You almost die of laughing so much. This is the comedy one should have seen once, just as "the Gods must be crazy." The movie is really worth being watched.
