Celebrated writer-director Francis Veber (La Cage aux Folles) adapted his own play—a dark comedy—about a competition among a group of smug Parisians to see who can bring the biggest “idiot” to their weekly dinner party. Pierre (Thierry Lhermitte) thinks he’s outdone them all with his latest guest (Jacques Villeret), a finance-ministry accountant whose hobby is building matchstick replicas of famous monuments. But a series of mishaps turns the tables, with surprising results.
