The real reason the French don't like us,
This review is from: Man With One Red Shoe (VHS Tape)I had high hopes for this one when it was released; the original French movie 'The Tall Blond Man with One Black Shoe' is one of my favorite comedies, and hey, who doesn't like Tom Hanks?
But this remake is streets apart from that - for all the mayhem in the common plot of intelligence intrigue and unwitting decoys, the remake plays it lots meaner and uglier than the original...and then is downright prudish on the sexual angles that made the original a pleasing adult comedy.
Maybe if you never saw the original you can like or tolerate this one. As for me...Sacre bleu, it stinks.
