The rest is only too obvious to relate.
Grady Harp
This is simply a very funny movie...There are lite lovers-swopping, crossdressing and car chases... I adored this film.
JD Aeon
This is not a negative aspect, but rather a very poignant element that Poiré chose to add to this film.

There's no accounting for taste... I loved this movie.

From the opening company credits - 'Comedie Star' has a grand musical score that descends into a sarcastic gargle to the end of the film, I had a blast with this movie.

Playing the unfortunate foil, Régis Laspalès, as Maurice who haplessly ends up in drag after stopping by Georges house to collect clothing for a charity - his near pathetic yet suddenly 'in character' wavering made this movie for me.

Dressed in a yellow-butterfly dress, nicked and cut from shaving too quickly, shifting from elegantly comfortable in his new role as Georges wife and back again to some really bad high-school play acting - "Beware! Beware the flies!" - Laspalès plays every moment right - which usually means playing it wrong for Georges purposes of throwing the jealous husband of his jilted mistress off of Georges trail.

Yes, the movie is slapstick and it is sloppy at moments... but in a way that just fits right in and is at home in the movie's tone and settings.

Special mention (and attention) should go to Götz Otto [aka 'Mr. Stamper' to James Bond] - the pouty German Audi salesman in France and the jealous husband plays to the fullest his sculpted face and physique: a sexual monster of a man.

Maurice resisted his advances - but you could almost see his defenses being overwhelmed and on the brink of failure at moments.

For as low of a score that this film carries, I hand to confirm that I had watched the same film. For some strange reason, I witnessed a completely different film than the one mentioned from other critics. I thoroughly enjoyed this French farce that was boldly colorful, imaginatively creative, and passionately contrived. While I did find it at times hard to read the subtitles and see the action together, I did not see it as a completely spoiled moment for the film. The comedy was quick, the plot was well rounded, and I especially loved the characters that director Jean-Marie Poiré brought to the screen. It was so wonderfully absurd that it kept me glued to the screen wondering what would happen next. I will admit that this is a rather predictable film, but what Poiré has done is taken a used story and restyled the "fun" fit in this modern day of cinema. This suddenly transformed into a zany adventure that kept my head buzzing, my mind engrossed, and my funny bones in action.

The best part of this film is simply the characters. There are two power-players in this film that each bring something unique and original to the screen and ultimately make Ma femme...s'appelle Maurice worth watching. The first is the hysterical Régis Laspalès whom nearly steals the entire film away from everyone else. He takes the role of Maurice and transforms it into a modern day Robin Williams vehicle. From the moment that I meet him in a little bread shoppe until the final climactic moments, I was captured. He controlled the screen with such brilliance and pizzazz that I was surprised that I had not encountered him in any other films. He was genuine, which is sometimes a hard asset to find in comedians today. The second character that I deeply enjoyed was Gotz Otto.

It was hard at times to determine the sexual preference of the cast since they appeared to be "open". Lots to laugh at.
