We can see that Sergeant Gibon (which is actually staff sergeant) carries a badge of the Picardie region of his uniform shirt, in the second part of the police captain is wearing a badge of the Burgundy region. The ranks of the police are not respected; the captain is subordinate to the staff sergeant. See more »
The only film where stupidity actually makes sense.
I'm Chinese who reside in Sydney, Australia, and was fortunate to have a government operated television studio to show foreign programs in its original language with English subtitles.
More fortunate isn't because of the showing of the Hong Kong Kung-Fu films but the funniest film in anyone's language Les Visiteurs'. As the English subtitles has already provided so much enjoyment to the film, I would assume most of the French would have laugh until they start coughing, to the extended of suffering from a sore throat.
OOOKAY!! Which was frequently used in the film deliverers the impact to some the comic relief, but from my point of view, it is not a simple comedy to make. Some research was properly done to imagine someone who had lived in the middle ages, not forgetting their customs and habits from that era, then place them to the present day, you will end up witnessing similar chaos and disasters that is far worse than Mr. Bean.
My favorite is when they call the car a chariot', also the subtitles is presented with Medieval English, I would imagine the same in French.
This is not doubt the funniest movie I have seen in my lifetime, the way they mess up the bathroom made me though it was stupid at first, but then I realize it actually make sense, as this is how they clean themselves back in the middle ages. This film beats my funniest English film, which is Dirty Rotten Scoundrels' directed by Yoda (i.e. Frank Oz)
