    A minor classic! One of the year's best films, and certainly the funniest. Don't miss it.

    Full of social issues, affirmative action, sexual harrassment, rules in the workplace, bigotry, also deals with perception and latent homosexuality. I lead a movie group and expect to have great discussions.

    Excellent---well-done. We laughed out loud many times. Good story, and well-written, and acted.

    Hilarious French farce.
  2. 90
    The French originals are always much breezier, the characters more genuine and the actors subtler even if the situations are just as silly.
  3. 20
    Has a blithe tone and a capable cast, but Veber's script is 100 percent laugh-free.
