This movie, though shot a while back and its two stars (De Funes and Coluche) are gone up there, is still actual.
A renowned French restaurant reviewer, Duchemin, is about to quit and leave it to his rather bohemian son, who prefers doing a clown in a circus rather than follows his dad's footsteps. A food promoter, Tricatel, wants to nail him by providing his bad "fast food" through regional French restaurants, by challenging him in a TV show. Wanting to prove his food is no good, he decides to take his son on a restaurant tour across France, but Tricatel gets hold of the scheme. It's up to them to get into Tricatel's food processing plant to prove that he serves vile food to french restaurateurs.
This type of movie makes us think of what can be served in restaurants might not be as good as it pretends. However, lots of funny moments, and Coluche love interest, Marguerite, is not bad to see either in this movie.
A must-see if you think twice before eating in a restaurant...
