What is it?
My hollow tooth. I've lost my cyanide capsule. That's never happened to me before when I kissed a woman. Good lord, where is it?
I spit it out. Naturally.

Ussualy spy comedies are boring to me. James Bond was spoofed so many times, that it's not funny anymore (Get Smart (tv series) and Austin Powers is an exception). This movie would be also just another spy comedy, but some things make this movie different from other and even original. The plot is not usual to spy comedies. Actually there were two stories told in this movie - one about a poor writer, another is about a spy, who is a main character of the poor writers book. Both of them are played by Jean-Paul Belmondo, who was just brilliant in this movie. I liked his mimics of the face when he played Bob Saint-Clair (a spy). He played Bob Saint-Clair with some sort of irony and it was hilarious. Most of the jokes in this movie were slap-stick jokes, it looked weird sometimes, but that's probably what made this movie so funny.
