Georges, a wealthy Parisian, has a mistress who wants to marry him, but he has no intention of divorcing his wife, the source of his money. The mistress, meanwhile, has a jealous boyfriend, so when Georges dumps her, two people are angry with him. Add Georges' wife, who suspects the affair. The mistress calls Georges to say she's coming to tell his wife everything, so Georges asks Maurice, a stranger who's passing by, to pose as his wife and scare off the mistress. In this farce, nothing goes as Georges plans. Written by <>

Laugh out loud funny!
20 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I never thought that I laughed so hard from a French film before. This film is a French farce at the best. The cast is incredible and they make the script fly in front of you. The craziness of George's whose married to wealthy Marion and cheating on her with beautiful Emannuelle, a French model with blonde hair and great figure. His mistress want to confront the wife with a chainsaw and crazy paratrooper boyfriend, Johnny. George's gets Maurice to play his wife in a hilarious send up of the pretty woman scene in the clothes. Johnny is crazy jealous and risks his job and life for the love of his life. The scenes on location in Paris and Venice are done well. This is a great comedy where you see a simple lie manifests into comic disaster.
