Storyline

Odile Deray est attaché de presse pour le film "Red is Dead". Mais au festival de Cannes, personne ne veut regarder un tel navet. Pourtant, les gens changent d'avis au moment où les projectionnistes meurtent les un après les autres, assassiné par le méchant de "Red is Dead". Serge Kazamarov est envoyé sur place pour protéger la victime suivante. Quelques jours plus tard, la salle est comble et même le gratin de Cannes est sur place... Written by Jean Martin

The Best Comedy ever...
4 November 1999 | by (San Francisco, CA) – See all my reviews

In this movie that i saw at least a hundred times, you just laugh every 5 seconds !! This kind of humour is really great, actors are so funny and so good... For somebody who wants to know how french humour is, go see it, you won't be disappointed :+)
