Absolutely disastrous
8 February 2007 | by (Switzerland) – See all my reviews

I totally agree with previous comment on this movie. As much as I rolled myself on the floor in laughter while enjoying the original series, as much I was appalled by the French "version". What a pity for the French who are so delicate in their own art of comedy, so funny and so much inspired and God knows how much the rest of the world already appreciate ! What got hold of this bunch I just cannot imagine... and how could two major actresses commit themselves into this failure is mystery to me. Well, well, they managed to turn something totally hilarious into the worst kind of vulgarity I have ever seen on screen. At least it should teach one a good lesson : do not imitate other's fantasies if you are too lazy or too dim at the joyful art of comedy. Please do something else but do not spoil our pleasure. Thanks in advance.
