Francis Veber has done it again!
12 April 2004 | by tomleviSee all my reviews

I have just returned from the cinema with a burst of energy!

Without doubt, this is THE funniest movie that I have ever seen in my life...be it in French or English. Francis Veber has produced a film that not only equals his earlier works, Le Placard (The Closet - 2001) and Le Diner de Cons (The Dinner Game - 1998), but surpasses them by miles. The entire cinema was rocking with laughter.

And without spoiling the comedy by disclosing some hillarious punchlines, I recommend this film to all cinema-goers, be they French- or English-speakers.

Do yourself a favour... GO AND SEE IT!

10/10.
