I didn't like it. I don't think it's bad, but beyond couple of smiles it wasn't funny for me. It's not that the jokes were bad or misfitted, they just were predictable.
Strangely, Christian Clavier reminded me of Louis De Funes, and some of the situations here reminded me of older french movies that i liked. However, this time I could foresee each and every madness Claude Verneuil had.
The jokes weren't neither rude nor offending, which is good, but they definitely lacked a spark or originality.
I felt that the director didn't want to break any rules or do something really crazy and funny, but rather go by an existing well established formula.
