The French are funny. Sex is funny. And comedies are funny. Yet no French sex comedies are funny.
One-joke slapstick farce about a klutz who becomes useful during a kidnap investigation.
Veber's breakthrough, thanks to the inspired teaming of Richard and Depardieu -- and a brilliantly simple concept that doesn't stand up to (or ask for) very much scrutiny.
A funny French film filled with plenty of slapstick comedy.
You know it's absolutely amazing how much Luke and Owen Wilson resemble, in their current states, Gerard Depardieu in this movie. Luke has the large face and Owen has the nose and the hair...almost makes you think about their parentage...Anyway, this movie didn't really do a lot for me quite frankly, I found it only sporadically funny and everything else between the funny scenes was completely dull and boring. It's kind of a shame, because Pierre Richard had some great facials and his chemistry with Gerard Depardieu is decent enough where you'd think the movie would be better than it is, but it's not and I blame the writing for this. It's just not that well-written and completely relies on the actors, the problem is they're not great together, only decent as mentioned. I mean when the most interesting thing about the movie is how much Owen and Luke Wilson look like Gerard Depardieu here, then you know you're fucked.
