The Dinner Game (1998)


“Le Dîner de Cons”


The Dinner Game is comedy film written and directed by Francis Veber. It is a film adaptation by Veber of his play Le Dîner de Cons. It was the top grossing French film at the French box office for 1998 and second place overall behind Titanic.

Pierre Brochant, a Parisian publisher, attends a weekly “idiots’ dinner”, where guests, who are modish, prominent Parisian businessmen, must bring along an “idiot” whom the other guests can ridicule. At the end of the dinner, the evening’s “champion idiot” is selected. When Pierre decided to play a game to see who could bring the biggest idiot to a dinner party he never imagined he’d be the one playing the fool. But when Pierre’s selfish ways come to light before the main course he gets his just dessert.
