Roger (Roger Pierre) and Marc (Jean-Marc Thibault) are two popular French comedians who try to bring off the slapschtick as best they can in this routine comedy. The thin plot hinges on the fact that the two men are the keys to a spectacular inheritance for two sides of a family. As a result, avaricious family members chase them about with an eye to a big jackpot as their reward. Individual sight gags are sprinkled throughout the proceedings and although there are hilarious moments, that does not mean that the sum total equals the best of its component parts.
