This is a comedy starring, Jean Reno and Christian Clavier, thier first together as a double act team.
The president of the republic of France calls in Jean, also known in this as 'le Squale' - the 'Shark'. He is being sent
on a very important mission,to find the last mole 'le poulet' in the DGSE. Unfortunately for him, he actually trained the
spy he is looking for, and Le poulet is the most ridiculous of men to add to it all: This man is also married to a woman who
is a spy in her own right and she has to compromise her husband for the best result in the undercover mission. Le Squale also
has to compromise himself with his so called girlfriend, Isabelle Fournier, who is also a spy, and not a very faithful girlfriend
Jean feels quite sorry for the wife, and so the mission changes on to a somewhat different course.
It makes a change to see Jean with a pretty woman insted of the usual ugly ones he gets landed with in films.
I like the bit in this film where they are parked in a van with a very fat woman whom they are pking fun at her and calling
her names behind her back, along with anyone else who goes by.
