The best comedy film I have seen this year.
16 August 2000 | by (Chelmsford, England) – See all my reviews

The dialogue is fast at times and sometimes in olden French at that, the subtitles are in white and can't be read on a white background but I still found this excellent, (I don't speak French). Jean Reno always a favorite, plays well, though there is not the same scope as in some of his thriller roles. Christian Clavier is superb in his two roles, but for me the star was the Countess. Altogether very enjoyable.
