I can't remind a movie making me laugh that much. In fact, I can't remind laughing that much at all.
Although I can speak a little French, I'm not fluent at all, yet I could laugh all the time: the role play is great and the plot is wonderful.
Don't care about the crime, almost action, background of the movie, and watch it with you children: it's really only a background used for creating gags, there's no violence and the only shot scene is not that explicit.
The bottom line is: watch this movie, no matter if you can speak French or not. It's a real world wide comedy.
