Movie Info

In this broad farce from French director Jean-Marie Poire, a Parisian must scramble to save his house, marriage and livelihood -- all having been threatened as a result of his own dishonesty. Georges' (Philippe Chevallier) troubles began while vacationing in Italy with his hot young mistress Emmanuelle (Alice Evans) when she discovered he has a wife and his only source of income is an allowance from his mother-in-law (Stephane Audran) -- both facts Georges had gone out of his way to conceal. With the trip ruined, the pair returns home to Paris where Georges discovers his mother-in-law's intentions of selling the swanky apartment he and his wife live in. Soon, the adulterous Frenchman must fend off prospective buyers, a very vindictive Emmanuelle and her freakishly virile and extremely jealous boyfriend (Gotz Otto) -- with the unexpected assistance of Maurice (Regis Laspales), a man he ran into on the street.

Critic Reviews for Ma femme... s'appelle Maurice

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (1) | Rotten (2)

  • Slap an ill-fitting dress on an ugly man and you have instant guffaws. That surefire vaudeville tactic guarantees this chaotic French farce a fair share of laughs.

  • Aside from Laspals's enlivening physical humor, Poir's forced, formulaic comedy of errors has little to offer.

    August 24, 2004 | Full Review…
  • Plods along in slow motion when the action should be zippy and fun.
