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)

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.

August 26, 2004 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Aside from Laspalès's enlivening physical humor, Poiré's forced, formulaic comedy of errors has little to offer.

Plods along in slow motion when the action should be zippy and fun.
