Re: "Bad" movies you will defend with your life.

Almost anything involving Terence Hill, Roger Moore or John Carpenter. Or stop-motion animated monsters.

Re: unlucky man and a lucky girl

Such plots are very typical of the Pierre Richard (or Francis Perrin) era of french comedies. Did it feature a tall blond curly protagonist ?
