'''''Les ''Les Aventures de Rabbi Jacob''''' ('''''The Jacob'' (''The Mad Adventures of Rabbi Jacob''''') Jacob'') is a 1973 French cult comedy directed by Gérard Oury. It stars Creator/LouisDeFunes in one of his most famous roles.



Meanwhile in France, Victor Pivert (De Funès), a xenophobic, chauvinistic and bad-tempered businessman, is on the way to his daughter's wedding. He and his driver, Salomon (Henri Guybet), have a car accident in which Pivert's car (carrying a speed boat) flips upside-down into a lake. When Salomon, who is Jewish, refuses to help because Shabbat has just begun, Pivert [[GeorgeJetsonJobSecurity fires him]], much to Salomon's content. As Pivert goes to find assistance in an empty bubblegum factory, he unvoluntarily helps Mohammed Larbi Slimane (Claude Giraud), an Arab revolutionist leader, to escape a group of SecretPolice killers led by Farès (Renzo Montagnani). On the run from both Farès' killers and the French police, they disguise themselves as rabbis at the airport. Pivert is then mistaken for Rabbi Jacob by the Schmoll family.

* StandardSnippet: What the music for the Hassidic dance has become. It wasn't a authentic one but specially made for the movie, though still inspired by traditional Hassidic music. Still, it has been readily adopted by the French Jew community, and you can often hear it at Bar Mitzvah or Jewish weddings.

* CoveredInGunge: The bubblegum factory sequence. First Pivert (twice), then each of the bad guys including Farès himself, ends up falling into a huge vat of green liquid gum, and stay covered in the stuff for most the scene.



* SlipperySkid: Victor Pivert is chased by Fares and his lieutenant inside the bubblegum factory. When cornered, he opens up a huge holder of bubblegum beads, sending them rolling under his pursuers' feet. After doomed efforts at staying upright, they finally fall and skid down some stairs, and then down a chute to end up into a vat of green liquid gum.
