Except for Fernandel, critics were negative when the movie came out.
"Le Coq du Régiment" belongs to the barracks room humor, and usually I also don't like this genre, but this very one, I simply adored it...
A series of misunderstanding is the conducting thread of that forgotten burlesque comedy.
The story is about a lieutenant, nicknamed "the Rooster of the Regiment", a married man, who just can't help running after any woman passing around, and one of his friend, who always has "good ideas" to give him a hand to come out of "ubuesque" situations.
Fernandel, for once, doesn't shine more than the other actors, because they are all very good...
The witty dialogs and the script are well conducted.
One wonders what will be the next idea, the next step to prevent things to fall apart...
and another "brilliant idea" is proposed by lieutenant's friend... which furthermore complicates the situation...
In two words : very funny !
If you like Fernandel, and/or comedies, don't miss it !
