  1. 75
    Preserves the flavor of the original and even improves upon it.
  2. 60
    A happy vulgarity still reigns.
  3. Reviewed by: Christine Dolen
    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.
  5. Reviewed by: Frank Lovece
    Heartfelt as Reno and Applegate are here, the film strands them with an impotently blustering, straw-dog villain and a limp, directionless story.
  6. Reviewed by: Joanna Weiss
    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. But every time I watch it again, it's just as good as the last. Expand
