No screenwriter is listed in the credits of the movie whose original script was in fact written by Francis Veber. In the DVD commentary, director Philippe de Broca explains that he thought that the character of Christine needed to be fleshed out. Veber disagreed and eventually director Jean-Paul Rappeneau was called to settle the question. Rappeneau agreed with de Broca and both of them rewrote part of Veber's script. Veber made strong reservations about the rewrite, and after seeing the finished movie, asked that his name be removed from the credits. See more »

When l'd watched this picture in 1988 l'd found it a crap...now in first time on DVD with original audio (Ugh!!) looks to me more acceptable and digestible...the plot is very clever but the acting is bizarre...nonsense and surreal....Jacqueline Bisset delivery your attractiveness to saves the movie....Jean Paul Belmondo is fine when he playing the writer only....the Mexican landscape helps to much....this odd french comedy is dated and isn't for all taste...but works for a killing time only and of course to see how beauty Jacqueline Bisset was in the seventies!!!
First watch: 1988 / How Many: 2 / Source: TV-DVD / Rating: 6.25
