What's wrong with that?
4 January 2020 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

Another vehicle for Raymond Souplex and Jeanne Sourza who often worked in tandem ; the latter appears late in the movie and her screen time is rather short for a top billing.

Ernest is an honest sales representative .He accidentally swaps his suitcase for that of gangsters who have just burglarized a jeweler store .The policemen,who wanted to catch the robbers in the act, find a suitcase full of brushes and Ernest is arrested.Gigi,the gangsters' moll , mistakes him for a tough guy and helps him to escape from jail.He reluctantly becomes the thieves' boss.

And an efficient boss,at that!This a cock and bull screenplays,but often funny,with occasionally a good line or two : higgledy-piggledy , an unconsummated marriage, a broke suicidal Russian countess, one of the gangsters dressed up as a vicar, a coffin full of loot , a smart police lieutenant (Jean Tissier) who points out that you cannot pluck cherries on an oak tree ,a woman lying on the railroad track waiting for the train to run over her ,but forgets the switching;and a stirring joyful final song "Y'a pas de mal à ça " (=what's wrong with that ?)!
