A Great moment of pleasure
22 June 2001 | by (Paris) – See all my reviews

This was one of the best comedy i saw in France. The plot itself is not really new but the development is quite funny. "Super Résistant" is the new Batman and the end of the movie, which is about a very well known show in France (Les Dossiers de l'Ecran) was funny enough to let most of the people who saw the film for the first time on TV really amazed. The German accent, be it real or not, is just for the fun, playing with words and giving lot of crucial sentences to remember to joke on german among friends. In any way, this movie is not to be compared with "La Grande Vadrouille" unless you want to compare movies together only because they are based in same timeline.
