Samuel L. Jackson,
An out-of-town heist becomes a nightmare for a crew of French burglars when they mistakenly rob the head of the Chicago mafia. Unaccustomed to the ways of the American underworld, it is not long before they have the mafia, the FBI and a couple of street gangs on their backs as they attempt to make their way back to Paris.

Another "in joke": when the thieves want to take aliases to protect their identities, Marcel insists on being called "Elvis". That's because Johnny Hallyday, who plays Marcel, is know as the "Elvis of France". See more »

Lock Stock and a bunch of French guys :) Good movie!
I actually laughed out loud at this smart funny film about a gang of French men doing a "job" in the US, then getting caught in a web of unexpected developments. I have no idea why I didn't hear of this movie earlier, it's just as funny as Lock Stock and Two Loaded Barrels, only it's more wit than brawn, as the spree of French actors are above a certain age. Even the last scene is reminiscent of the above mentioned film.
The story was good, the dialogues funny, the music was nice, the acting was very good, as one might expect from a bunch of actors such as these.
Bottom line: a must see movie, even if it is, after all, an action comedy about mobsters of different aromas.
