No need to tip this taxi driver

STAFF WRITER

Bungling cop Emilien Coutant-Kerbalec is back for another round of farcical chases and misunderstandings aided by his taxi-driver friend

In Marseille, a Belgian criminal wanted all over Europe has finally been captured and is being held for 24 hours before being extradited to a prison in Congo.

Also in Marseille is accident-prone police captain Emilien Coutant-Kerbalec (Frederic Diefenthal). Coutant-Kerbalec is tricked by the smooth-talking villain and convinced to let the prisoner go. Coutant-Kerbalec loses his job, but taxi-driver friend Daniel Morales (Samy Naceri) helps him out, once again. Morales, not realizing that the man is a criminal, kindly drives him from the police station, and so knows his whereabouts. He shares this information, with the bungling cop, who consequently wins his job back. The only thing left to be done is re-locate and re-capture the outlaw.
