3 April 2002 | by axrauppSee all my reviews

Though it isn't burdened with a heavy plot or serious acting, it's a great comedy. I don't know how it did in the USA, but here in Taiwan it was a hit. It's fresh and clean, and shows some nice French locations. But it's funny. Certainly, there are things taken from other films, but it really is funny.

This is a film which the whole family can enjoy, as there is very little violence and, as far as I could tell, no foul language. I rented the DVD, and unfortunately, it did not have an English soundtrack, only subtitles, but the translation was excellent, bringing a lot of the play on words into the mix.

I wonder how much those Peugeots go for...
