There is a certain similarity between the main characters of this movie and another French production movie The Intouchables (2011). Ousmane (played by Omar Sy in this movie) as well as Driss from The Intouchables (2011), who portrayed a real life caretaker Abdel Sellou (played also by Omar Sy), have both grown up in very poor Paris' suburbs, they both share similar attitude towards authorities and have a taste of humor that is very much alike, though this is very probably unintentional and mainly caused by very distinct personality of Omar Sy.

Not the best buddy movie I've seen (2 Guns comes to mind of late), but still a very enjoyable effort. Different people connecting sort of. And because this is french/European, it does not skip on the nudity. Something a US remake probably would do, especially considering what target audience they'd want to reach with it.
One of our main actors is on his way to produce a lot of movies, especially since his very successful turn in "Intouchables" (english title). A very good movie, but also something that might come back to haunt him. A friend of mine didn't like his effort here and thinks he will be eaten and chewed off in a matter of months. Doing movies no one will want to see and delivering performances that are not good at all. That's a grim view, almost as grim as the bad guys that have to be fought in this movie. If you look upon it as a small little comedy, you might be able to enjoy yourself. If you try to compare it to "Intouchables", you won't!
