Funny!
14 March 2003 | by requiemukSee all my reviews

As usual, the IMDB users who feel they belong to the upper eschilons of film society have mocked this, a film which is genuinely funny.

From the start the film is funny - a rally car being overtaken by a taxi - 'Tourists!' as he calls them. Some great exhibition driving, good stunts and a black impenetrable car which starts when someone says ninja to it.

Some good gags, good laughs and overall a very funny film. Although I feel it loses some of its charm in translation, my very limited knowledge of French helped me appreciate a bit more than I would have.
