As a French citizen living in the States, I am delighted to watch French movies.
I especially enjoy comedies, and this is one I had been dying to view for the longest time, my father having made such great comments about it, the main one being;
"It's stupidly funny!". Indeed, it was funny. I may be the only one laughing in my leaving room,
but it doesn't matter! (the rest of my family doesn't know French). Jean Reno and ? Clavier make quite a funny pair.
It is a never ending "farce", with very few serious moments, if any at
all. So let's face it, if you're looking for an educational purpose in watching this movie, you may not be satisfied.
But the laughters alone make it a great experience and a movie worth watching any
day. When I watch this movie, it makes me so greatful to be French; not out of pride, but out of gladness.
PS: the lady who plays Reno's gt,gt,gt,gt,gt...grand daughter is in real life "Jacquouille" (Clavier') wife.
