The Dinner Game (1999)

THE DINNER GAME is a very funny, multiple Cesar-winning French farce 
about an idiot (Jacques Villere) and the havoc he wreaks on the man 
who invites him to dinner (Thierry Lhermitte).  Real characters with 
real feelings help keep this one from turning too manic.  They also 
make an effective counter to the expertly staged/scripted physical/
verbal humor.  You'll laugh, you'll cry from laughing, and, best of 
all, you'll feel good about the characters after it's all over.  
Frances Veber writes and directs.  Recommended.
