Really funny movie
6 July 2005 | by savethefutureSee all my reviews

The theater scene in Britain is above the best! So is the scene in the old house and many more to come. The whole movie is superb, i've watched it lots of times and i want to do it again! It was one of my favorites during childhood because of it's incredible sense of humor and laugh-episodes. The music is awesome too!

Pierre is at his best. I really liked those bad guys in swan disguise! What a sight! It's European humor, not some toilet jokes, pure humor which is not gross or nasty.

Plot is in a way not realistic, but it's very funny and hilarious. The road-movie type script makes it even better and keeps your interest.

See it! It's better than recent years comedies together!
