Okay, the plot is a little stupid, but the movie managed to make me laugh during the whole time. The guardian angels are so funny it is unbelievable. Gérard Depardieu and Christian Clavier are simply wonderful. I recommend it if you want to laugh. Only downside is that the action scenes are a little useless, I think.
