Trivia

Louis de Funès was intended to play the role of Papy in the movie but he died before filming commenced. A dedication was given to him at the beginning of the movie : "A Louis de Funès...". But according to the documentary Des Bronzés au Père Noël, la folle histoire du Splendid (2014), he was intended to play the role of Maréchal Ludwig Von Apfelstrudel. See more »

Rather dumb
8 January 2001 | by (Geneva, Switzerland) – See all my reviews

It is never as good as "La grande vadrouille". Some scenes are funny, others just too dumb. Why do German officers talk in French (with a wrong German accent) among them ? They have an impressive cast, but that's pretty much all this French comedy about the German invasion has to offer.
