Storyline

The gang is back, with Eddie, Dov, and Yvan still in the textile industry and working in Paris' Sentier district. After an umpteenth problem with an independent retailer who can't cover the cost of merchandise, they decide to aim for the guaranteed safety of a large distribution contract with an established chain. Eventually, they do make it big, striking a deal with Eurodiscount, a European hypermarket chain (combination supermarket and department store). However, their joy dissipates as Eddie and Yvan quickly learn who dictates the rules when dealing with a large chain. Meanwhile, Dov, chased out of his home by his wife, Karine, after yet another extramarital affair, leaves with Patrick for California, hoping to strike a business deal there, and Serge, now a struggling delivery man, falls in love with a young girl from a good family whom he fools into believing that he's wealthy by taking over his cousin Patrick's home and belongings during his absence, and by spending the mob's ...

a successful follow-up
12 October 2002 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

In 1997, the movie "la vérité si je mens" was released and had a huge success, so it was almost inevitable that it was followed by a sequel and this happened 4 years later. But this sequel is a pleasant surprise because it's more successful and better than the first film. Besides, I'm amazed that it's only rated 6.6/10. As far as this sequel is concerned, it's full of good surprises: to start obviously with the actors who are all amazing and they've got punch ( the palm would surely go to José Garcia). The first movie mainly focused on Richard Anconina's life and feelings and tended to neglect the other actors but here these actors have got more calibre and more liberty (in some parts of the movie, they're even the main actors). So the movie is well-regulated. It's necessary to say that the minor actors are wisely chosen: the thrilled Enrico Macias, the sly Daniel Prévost.... Moreover, there aren't any injuries times so you don't get bored at all. Dialogues are rippling and hit the bull's eye, several gags are irresistible although a bit predictable and let's add a lively rhythm. At the end, it's a dynamic and vibrating movie. It's worth watching!
