    Preserves the flavor of the original and even improves upon it.

    A happy vulgarity still reigns.

    Director Jean-Marie Gaubert, who also directed this film's French predecessor, keeps the silly story barreling along.
  4. A lot of it is low, crude, admittedly comic in the rudest positive sense, which involves a lot of falling down to humorous effect.

    Heartfelt as Reno and Applegate are here, the film strands them with an impotently blustering, straw-dog villain and a limp, directionless story.

    It's hard to believe anyone would think importing a French comedy was a good idea.
  7. 12
    Don't even think of visiting this French fiasco.

    This movie was excellent, and definitely funny. Obviously, the majority of the media has no sense of humor.

    Okay, so maybe it isn't the funniest movie I've ever seen. But it's damn entertaining. I've seen this movie about 7 times. Why? I don't know.Okay, so maybe it isn't the funniest movie I've ever seen. But it's damn entertaining. I've seen this movie about 7 times. Why? I don't know.
