Despite all the running around, the movie still feels slow, dragging sluggishly toward the end of its long 109 minutes.

When you're looking to remake French cinema, the name 'Stallone' leaps immediately to mind. As in, 'for God's sake, don't cast Sylvester Stallone!'

Bad idea badly executed.

This is why Stallone gave up on comedy.

Sep 17, 2003 | Rating: 1/5

Only occasionally flirts with the breathless lunacy of well-conceived farce - and there are huge, painful gaps in between the few worthwhile gags.

The charm of this film lay in the talents of the supporting characters.

People tend to run this down, for good reason, but I always found it kind of charming - even if it isn't perfect.

Hey...he's the Italian Stallion. The movie started out relly boring...but then the plot started getting complicated...and that was fun...the movie has a couple of fun jokes but it barey qualifies as a comedy...still fun though
