Happy New Year (1987): Remake of French Movie Starring Peter Falk

John Avildsen (“Rocky”) directs this disappointing remake of a 1973 Claude Lelouche movie.

Peter Falk (in various disguises) and Charles Durning wish to steal the jewelry from a store owned by Tom Courtenay, but their plan goes expectedly awry.
