User Reviews

Extremely funny!
23 April 2000 | by neergaardSee all my reviews

Reno knows how to get mad and stay mad for a long time! This film is mad - and funny! It's been a very long time ago I simply had to fall down on the floor laughing. Especially the scene where Reno recognizes that his girlfriend is working on Graniansky (Clavier) is dangerously good. Also good jokes about France and french politics.
