Gerard Depardieu and Pierre Richard team up in this comedy (later remade in America as Pure Luck) as incompetent cops Campana and Francois, who are searching for the accident-prone daughter of a filthy-rich business titan. Their investigation takes them from the boardrooms of a huge multinational conglomerate all the way to the tropics of Mexico.
