About the Movie
A skinflint husband at last decides to be generous to his wife by offering her the gift of a country house. But he can’t refrain from doing it on the cheap and therefore chooses to work with a dubious real estate agent and bungling workmen, who soon turn his surprise into a nightmare.
This movie is just too stupid to be anything but annoying - and I'm an easy critic. The protagonist is supposed to be money savvy yet he hooks up with a realtor so unscrupulous even a ten year old could spot it and two absurdly incompetent contractors in an attempt to surprise his wife with a dream vacation home. Investing several hundred thousand euros he continually throws good money after bad with such ridiculous carelessness it's painful to watch. Who does that? Dany Boon is great but save your money on this one.

This film is funny but these jokes have been done before. Very good cast though and I think the film greatly improves in the last half & ending. Watch it if you like Dany Boon, which I do.
Watched it three times and I still laugh
A great comedy!
