Completely absurd? Yes... but so good!!!
26 March 2003 | by (Lyon, FRANCE) – See all my reviews

Don't you just hate those comedies when you feel the joke coming two hours before the punchline?? well, I absolutely hate it, and in this movie, it just never happens, always surprised, and that's what I really liked about it... This marked the beginning of the career for "Les Inconnus" probably the most famous humorists there are in France... but I still preferred their next comedy: "Les trois frères" Still pretty good... 8/10
