Lots of funny characters, very entertaining
21 February 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed the film, in which a surprise audit of the Charles VII Hotel in Paris causes pandemonium. The Concierge is played by Daniel Prevost, who was hilarious as the tax agent in "Le Diner de Cons." When the hotel director mistakenly believes that a homeless person is a disguised tax auditor, all heck breaks loose. The film is chocked full of funny characters, including Richard, the homeless person; Jackquot, a street person trying to raise money by pretending to be from the latest country in need; Lucie, a hotel prostitute; and Roaul, a chicken farmer trying to impress. Tenue Correcte Exigee is a cute farce well worth spending 93 minutes watching.
