About this movie

It's a classic French twist on "Family Values" in this hysterical, delightful and heartwarming farce! When young Laurent (Rémi Laurent) returns to exotic St. Tropez, he bears big news for his beloved father, Renato (Ugo Tognazzi). Laurent has found the girl of his dreams and they are engaged! What's more, she and her family are on their way over for dinner at Renato's home to meet the in-laws-to-be. This traditional meeting of families seems typical, but because this ultraconservative family will be expecting to meet Renato and wife, they'll never be prepared for the shock of meeting Renato and his flamboyant, campy, outrageous lover - and drag-queen - Albin (Michel Serrault)! So, in a great effort to please his son, Renato asks Albin for the performance of a lifetime...setting up an unforgettable evening that is charged and ready to detonate an explosion of zaniness and absurdity.
