Easy and funny film!!!
10 July 2012 | by vintkdSee all my reviews

Not bad French comedy with interesting plot and good actors. An idea of this film is very original although I saw many movies about lucky guys who won quite a few money like "Brewster's Millions", "Mr. Deeds" or "Mr. Billion" but these were all American films. "Ah! Si j'étais riche" is the story very similar to real life. The main character Aldo is not handsome man, he's not successful, he's miser and he has very bad disposition but easy money won't make him happy never, maybe just better and cleverer. It's remarkable situation comedy with good sense and nice humor. I recommend its everybody who wants just to relax after hard work day and to look an easy funny film.
