I watched this one again last night, and it remains an outageously funny movie, with top notch dialogue and really good action sequences. A shame it didn't work in its time, because the cult following it has today is well deserved.

Like THE PUNISHER, I think France is where it was the most successful theatrically (and was not rated anything unlike everywhere else where it got 18 and R certificates).
