Honestly, I’m not sure this particular endeavor would be something I’d have an interest in were it not for the presence of Jean-Claude Van Damme. However, after seeing him flex his comedic muscles in that fantastic Coors Light commercial, I’m kind of curious to see him tackle something a bit lighter than his typical direct-to-video fare. The upcoming Russian comedy “Napoleon Kaput” — which is from the makers of “Hitler Kaput” — is the sort of broad physical comedy that I used to love as a kid. And while I’ve been known to toss in the “Police Academy” movies from time-to-time, this might be a bit too much for even someone like me to handle.
If you’re looking for a plot synopsis, unfortunately I don’t have one to share with you at the moment. However, I think you can get a pretty good idea of what this movie is going for by simply watching the clip embedded below. Our man Van Damme doesn’t show his face until the end of the trailer, but it’s worth a look if you’re a fan of the man’s work. Those of you who fancy slapstick comedy will no doubt be absolutely thrilled with what “Napoleon Kaput” is aiming for.
