Ha-ha-ha-ha, oh yes, Marseille is complicated. Full of small streets. And you'll see that the cells aren't big either.

As usual, the IMDB users who feel they belong to the upper eschilons of film society have mocked this, a film which is genuinely funny.
From the start the film is funny - a rally car being overtaken by a taxi - 'Tourists!' as he calls them. Some great exhibition driving, good stunts and a black impenetrable car which starts when someone says ninja to it.
Some good gags, good laughs and overall a very funny film. Although I feel it loses some of its charm in translation, my very limited knowledge of French helped me appreciate a bit more than I would have.
