This got me when I first saw it. It was during the previews in a movie: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7NGg2feEhHs

I checked. Brazilian Caroline Correa does look like Angelina Jolie.

Benicio del Toro? I think so; how else could they have put his name on the credits?

Er, petard? Off the top of my head isn't that a dagger (hence the expression 'hoist on his own petard'). It is also a red-coloured fire-cracker that comes in strings, sized anywhere from the smallest roughly 7mm long * 2mm wide, up to about 12cm*2cm, the latter being capable of doing some pretty serious damage (IIRC in the States they are called 'cherry-bombs').

Or did you mean putain, the French expletive, which literally means whore, but I've heard it used as a general expletive when a person (either gender) or inanimate object is really annoying you.

She did it for new Magnum ice cream. Same MO: Ad masquerading as trailer. There are 3 instalments but I can only find 2.

What's the French for 'a load of old b0ll0cks'?* :P

Yes, or add 'vous!' (='you!') on the end and, as you say that is AFAIK about as bad as I learned as a schoolboy.


p.s. Seems contrary now that in that expletive you are using the polite/formal tense of 'you'. One for a Francophile to explain ...? :)
