Not one of the best
11 November 2005 | by (Stockholm) – See all my reviews

I'm a big fan of Louis de Funès, but this movie wasn't very good.

To begin with: I think the plot wasn't interesting, just another kidnapping drama that we already have seen several times. The jokes were a little silly. I think about the scene were Gerber says that Cruchot peed in his bed at the age of 14. Another example: the scene where one of the gendarmettes loses her skirt, over all I think that there was too much nudity humor.

On the positive side we have the acting. The gang from "Le gendarme et les extra-terrestres" is back with de Funès, Michel Galabru, Claude Gensac, Guy Grosso, Michel Modo, Patrick Préjean, Maurice Risch and Jacques Francois. They all make a very good job as usual. The actresses who plays the gendarmettes were okay, even if there acting wasn't breath taking.

Over all, a pretty mediocre movie. But at the same time it holds a certain atmosphere since it was the last film made by de Funès and director Jean Girault. I give it five stars.
