29 January 2020 | Horror-yo
| Starts off well then descends into comedy nothingness
It starts off as an action-packed comedy with overly exaggerated scenes and a typically Jean-Marie Poiré styled humor.

By the time the plot and characters are established, the movie takes a strange turn. It's such a drop it can only be explained by the image of a cliff. As soon as the supernatural entities (the guardian angels) are introduced all Hell breaks loose but it's not even a little bit of fun.

This is bad enough to leave half way through. It just drags on, completely out of puff.

Poiré must've gotten rich after Les Visiteurs and must've wanted to have a bit of fun with the money, but the result is shockingly bad. Imagine this film without movie superstars Depardieu and Clavier.
