This movie is a shame.
30 August 2001 | by Master_YodaSee all my reviews

I only went to see this movie because I had the feeling it would suck. And I was right, the gags are really lame, and Josiane Balasko as Edina is awful. The original tv series was actually great, but this is a terrible movie, really really awful.

Here's a tip, don't go see this movie.
