Storyline

Muzafar and Feruz are two good-hearted shepherds from Taboulistan... a tiny country in Central Asia that no one has ever heard of. In order to bring his country into the international limelight, the son of the Tabouli president decides to try terror "advertising" and entrusts the two shepherds, more naive than evil, with the mission of a lifetime: destroying the Eiffel Tower! To meet their objective, they have to move through the most hostile territory imaginable: France! A France far different from the West they had heard described: Corsican nationalists, over-zealous policemen, dishonest taxi drivers, violent sports fans, crabby employees, unfriendly waiters, Kafkaesque administrations and medical malpractice... they are spared nothing. Luckily they meet Marianne, a young and pretty reporter who mistakes them for illegal aliens and helps shows them another face of France... a hospitable, magnificent and generous land where the living is easy. Vive la France! Written by Anonymous

A disgrace...
2 October 2013 | by mds75See all my reviews

This film is a disgrace! Vulgar, not funny and racist, a long litany of clichés (France would be such a wonderful country if not for the French, Corsicans and people from the middle-east are terrorists, the French are always on strike, etc.)... It is even worst than "Borat", something I thought impossible. Even José Garcia, though an excellent actor, is unable to bring any interest to his role and to save this "thing" from a total wreckage. Do not waste your time and money watching this. The person branding it to be "An excellent French comedy" either hates comedies, or the French, or French comedies… or is the producer of this thing or perhaps Michael Youn himself.
