Audience Member Film populaire sympa Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member Una peli que no puede faltar. Yves Montand lo borda y Louis de Funès qué se puede decir de él, magistral. Por alguna razón la reina de España es alemana y no habla español... pero ese "Ich liebe dich" y todas las confusiones idiomáticas le añaden frescura al film. Imprescindible verla en francés, el doblaje en español es pésimo. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member Louis De Funes being himself in a historical farce about royalty and the rich. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member This decidely French parody of the American Western, which manages to spoof much of French cinema also, is probably too culturally opaque to be fairly critiqued by me, but apparently true Francophiles find it hilarious. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member I only have one thing to say.... "Mon SeignOr, il est huit hOr!!!" Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member One of his best movies...finally got it on DVD Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Read all reviews
