Funny movie about drug selling in Paris
26 November 2000 | by (Lyon, France) – See all my reviews

This movie is about two brothers (J. Villeret, G. Lanvin), trying to make money in a business they know nothing about (drug selling). Their ignorance of this business is the occasion of lots of funny situations. The classic opposition between the weak and legalist guy and the strong works once again very well. Although some aspects seems a little dated (the movie takes place in the 80's) and the music not really great, this movie's gonna give you some moments of fun. To be seen if you're bad mooded!!!
