Yeah, so, uh, I'm not sure what to make of this one; It's not a project I knew about before today, even though I thought I was aware of all Omar Sy's upcoming projects. Although it looks like his role in this one is a supporting part, not starring like most of the others.

I say I'm not sure, because, first, what's up with that horrible wig on his head (see photo above)? I know it's a comedy, but still... it just looks really silly, and not silly in a good way.

But maybe if I understood what was being said in the trailer below (it's in French, and not subtitled), it would all make sense, and wouldn't seem so awfully silly. 

Maybe our French readers can chime in and enlighten us...

The film, which is scheduled to hit theaters in France on December 5th, is titled Mais qui a re-tué Pamela Rose (or But Who Re-Killed Pamela Rose), and its synopsis reads (translated with Google Translator, so it may not be absolutely perfect): Upon receiving a call from a superior, alerting him to the fact that Pamela Rose's coffin has been dug up and stolen, Detective Douglas Riper sees an opportunity to reconnect with former partner Richard Bullit. Apparently, a quarrell separated them. The two former glorious FBI agents, now has-beens, find themselves deep into investigating the desecration of Pamela Rose's grave, without knowing that they are actually being lured into a trap by a man who greatly wants to eliminate them. And, oh, by the way, there's a subplot having to do with their knowlegde of an assassination plot on the life of the President of the United States, played by Audrey Fleurot.

French filmmaker Eric Lartigau directs what is being described as a parody of Hollywood buddy cop comedy films, which is, interestingly set somewhere in the American Midwest, even though it's a French film. 

It stars French comedic television stars Kad Merad and Olivier Barroux, who are also the film's screenwriters. And as noted, Omar Sy plays a US Secret Service agent, called Mosby.

Watch the trailer below for a glimpse at what to expect; Our readers in France will get to see this in full when it opens in theaters there on December 5:

    The wig has the consistency of a chia pet.

    Hello everybody !

    So, let me explain this. This film is a sequel of a famous comic duo in France who really, really love to do stupid things so this wig isn't a big deal at all.
    We all know Omar Sy without this so it's just one of the goofy stuff we'll see in the film.


    By the way, JUG said that the redhead name was Potus but It's Potam and... It's the name of her plush that she forgot.


    I hope I'll be helping you understand a little better all of this !

    Bonjour from France and see you soon on Indiewire.

    Think Omar is playing a Secret Service agent. I believe the redhead is POTUS.

    Yup, you're right. It didn't take long after I posted it to receive an email with the correction. I made the change.
