Spoof of the Olympics
15 August 2010 | by (Montreal, Canada) – See all my reviews

The "Charlots" made a lot of movies in the 70s with mostly slapstick humour. They made fun of many subjects, such as the French Army, the Three Musketeers, James Bond or even Dracula.

This movie spoofs the Olympics (named the Continental games). A young grocer's girl falls for a flame bearer who will compete and her jealous ex-boyfriend along with 3 other friends go to Paris to represent France for the games. They do many events, but mainly the goal is not the gold here, but snatch the girlfriend from a jock.

There is a lot of slapstick here, but the main thing is that they mock so much in a running gag, the "no publicity" rule in all Olympic events...

A movie that is not much outdated, the Olympics are still around...
