I didn't notice that this movie was directed by Francis Veber when I rent it. Veber was a director and screenwriter of a lot of very good comedies from the 1980's and 1970's, most of them featuring comic Pierre Richard. Veber also directed the hilarious Le dîner de cons, in 1998. So, Le Jaguar had all the elements of Veber movies. It's not genious, but it had imagination in situations where a man (Bruel) had trouble because he's at a place or in a situation where he's not suppose to be, and he's got help from a man (Reno) who is at the right place. For good smiles, see this movie, or any of the Veber films. Reno is very good, as always.
