loved it as a kid, love it as an adult
16 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie the first time when I was quite young and have never stopped really liking this movie. The two twin actresses are stunning, Pierre Richard almost makes you believe he has a twin brother. The story is far from the best every written, but some scenes are just hilarious. It's a typical 80's french comedy, which far outmatches its US remake (Two much - 1995). It's probably one of the best movie with Pierre Richard where he doesn't play a clumsy character. The whole story is nothing but a dream, maybe silly at times, but it's definitely a feel-good type of movie. If you're a fan of Pierre Richard and still haven't watched this one, by all means go rent it somewhere. It's available on DVD.
