Truly it is a peculiar curse upon the world, this high-concept joke that refuses to die.

Not only microwaves what is already four-day-old fish in Paris, but lets the original director, screenwriters, and stars do the reheating.

Some of these gags are very funny, and it's a pleasure to see Reno as something other than a villain in an English language picture.

Even when the jokes prove a little musty ... they are refreshingly old-fashioned, and some are hilarious.

One of those rare American remakes of a French film that preserves the flavor of the original and even improves upon it.

Seems like the same old shtick, with capes and French accents.
April 6, 2001
Despite a Chicago setting, it's the American cast members who seem out of place, flailing as they struggle with their cartoon-ish roles.

Wasn't one iota funnier when I regained consciousness than it was when I mercifully slipped out of it.

Achieves an above-average number of hits on the laugh meter through an onslaught of nonstop irreverent gags.

Fairly entertaining, albeit in a bland sort of way.

It does yield solidly comic performances from Clavier and Reno.
