Second time Martin Short has appeared in an American remake of a French film. He previously appeared in Three Fugitives (1989). Both were remakes of buddy comedies starring Pierre Richard and Gérard Depardieu. Both times, Short played Richard's role. Both films were also written by Francis Veber, who directed The Three Fugitives (1989) See more »

This is a very funny movie that deserves to rated much higher than it is! I have seen it several times and always laugh hard. It was witty and cleverly written, and I think Short and Glover play very well off of each other (contrary to what many reviewers have said.) The scene in the mission is among the funniest things ever put to film. I don't need to write a book about this...you just need to rent it for yourself and you'll understand. It is a true comedy classic despite being a lesser-known film (like some of the other "bests" I might add.)
While there is not a lot of "substance" to this movie, for pure comedy, it is amongst the best!
