sitcom before its time
19 September 2001 | by (illinois) – See all my reviews

This film trudges on amiably enough, with little plot to guide it. It's enjoyable to see Fernandel and Raimu together in a comedy. The vignettes mostly feature Fernandel as sports jock - as clumsily out of place in this as Painless Potter (Bob Hope's role in The Paleface, as a killer dentist). Other great skits include an American's first encounter with pastis, Fernandel attemting to conduct a press conference in English with a knowledge of only a couple words, and a waiter's race (in full dress, with towels and trays) which opens the film. Very similar to the old Jackie Gleason and Sid Ceasar 50's TV shows.
