wanna see Brussels
5 August 2005 | by michal-2See all my reviews

if you want to see the original not just a copy: "Too much" with A. Banderas then you should watch it. great gags, great Pierre Richard playing double role of not too handsome gigolo

I remember these quotes: what is the difference between mine and my brother's belly?

having a first weeding night with yesterday's hamburger

wanna see Brussels? push the button... (and small boy from the picture hanging on the wall will pee on your eyes)

the first weeding night and she betrays me with my brother, maybe not my brother but she didn't know that it was me
