La Vie est Belle is purely and simply a showcase for the popular French comedy team of Roger Pierre and Jean-Marc Thibaut. The two stars also co-directed the film, thereby beating Jerry Lewis to the punch by some four years. The "plot," concerning the efforts of four people to live as cheaply as two, is merely a clothesline upon which to hang a series of unrelated comedy sketches. Supporting Pierre and Thibaut are the toothsome Colette Ricard and Veronique Zuber. The film's ironic title translates to the equally ironic Life is Beautiful.
