i am still waiting to laugh from this movie
21 February 2003 | by (montreal/Paris/Brest) – See all my reviews

The actor who played the main character (the new salesman) is pretty good! There s only actually two good jokes in this movie, the scenario is as bad as simple! I think this movie is for the ultimate fan of Benoît Poelvoorde (C est arrive pres de chez vous, his best film for the moment)!
