Very enjoyable French farce in which a hapless tax inspector who likes to build world landmarks from matchsticks is unwittingly invited to a “dinner for idiots” by a rather mean businessman. In this classic story, Brochant, the businessman, stands to win a significant bet by bringing the most idiotic guest, and believes that Pignon will earn him the prize.
Unfortunately, things do not g... read more

First of all, it is interesting to point out that the original title literal translation is not ‘the Dinner game’ or ‘Dinner of Schmucks’ but in fact ‘The Dinner of Cunts’. I always found it pretty nice that the French were never too skirmish to put a naked lady of some really foul language on their movie posters. Anyway, when I lived in France, this movie was a huge success when it w... read more

“First of all, it is interesting to point out that the original title literal translation is not ‘the Dinner game’ or ‘Dinner of Schmucks’ but in fact ‘The Dinner of Cunts’. I always found it pretty nice that the French were never too skirmish to put a naked lady of some really foul language on their movie posters. Anyway, when I lived in France, this movie was a huge success when it was released. Personally, except for the rather subversive title, I didn't care much about the whole thing as it looked really stupid and it took me a while to finally watch it. If I'm not mistaken, the first time I eventually saw it, I was completely stoned out of my mind so I wasn't really able to judge it. Eventually, I saw it a second time around and I thought it was actually not bad at all. I ” read more

“Very enjoyable French farce in which a hapless tax inspector who likes to build world landmarks from matchsticks is unwittingly invited to a “dinner for idiots” by a rather mean businessman. In this classic story, Brochant, the businessman, stands to win a significant bet by bringing the most idiotic guest, and believes that Pignon will earn him the prize.

Unfortunately, things do not go as planned and Pignon ends up spending an evening of misadventures with Brochant where each man learns a lot about the other.

The star of the show is easily Jacques Villeret as the dunderhead Pignon. Although he’s hapless and hopeless there is something charming about him and you root for him to overcome Brochant’s bigotry, but you certainly wouldn’t want him anywhere near you” read more

"Home - New Just a fantastic farce. A delightful madcap comedy which focuses on a somewhat jaded publisher. Every Wednesday he and his friends hold an idiot dinner in which they bring the stupidest person they can find to be mocked. Having found what he believes to be the prize idiot of all he invites him to his home and then watches as his life slowly unravels. Blessed with a kind heart the idiot tries to help as best he can and each attempt to help exacerbates an already out of control situati"
