  1. The comedy is strained to the point of lameness, most of it exaggerated clumsiness, stupidity or inappropriateness.

    Let the French stick to love stories and leave stupid comedies to Tinseltown.

It was been there, done that, plain and simple. I hate the silliness in it, the embarrassing scenes which people are mechanized to laugh at, which is an insult. I don't like it.

    Great French farce of 60's Spy films with brilliantly comedic performance by Jean Dejardin in the title role of French secret agent OSS 117.
