Date Finished: May 31, 2018
A playboy lawyer in France becomes the target of assassins and crooks through a case of mistaken identity. He bumbles around, getting involved with a beautiful woman, who is also involved, before becoming their prisoner. Eventually escaping, he has to help the police stop their assassination attempt during the Monaco Grand Prix.
It takes a little while before the focus settles on the lawyer, but it is fairly entertaining after that point. The logic behind the assassination attempt during the race makes no sense, and the whole plot is little more than an excuse to run around the south of France. Still, adequately entertaining.
