ldh's review

Based on a French film, a lot of plot elements simply didn't translate very well. The absurd nature of the story, while acceptable in the French version especially with Pierre Richard in the lead role, falls flat within an American cultural context. Richard Pryor is wonderful, as usual, but Jackie Gleason felt over the top and was distracting as a result.
