Le Diner de Cons,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Le Dīner De Cons [DVD]  (DVD)
This is a wonderful French farce which has recently been made in Hollywood as Dinner For Schmucks. Having not seen the American remake it would be unfair, indeed impossible, to try to make a comparison. Having said that, many superb French and other foreign films have been "Hollywoodised" and I have to say that none that I have seen compare favourably against the originals. Experience, therefore, tells me I fear that Le Diner de Cons will fare no better! If you want to watch a smart, brilliantly funny slapstick movie then seek out Le Diner de Cons before even thinking about watching the remake. Does anyone seriously believe that Hollywood's Dragon Tattoo trilogy will come near the Swedish films even if Daniel Craig is the male lead? Le Diner de Cons is a laugh out loud comedy that has slapstick but also has subtle French class. The great Jacques Tati would have approved.
