French Accent

The French accent is one that actors will use again and again for a variety of projects, whether it's Peter Sellers' over-the-top Pink Panther version or a more subtle accent much like Juliette Binoche in films like Chocolat and The English Patient. Pepe le Pew, eat your heart out, skunk boy.
