Young Bastien is very pleased when his hugely successful TV producer boss Jean-Louis Broustal begins to recognize him for his talents and then invites him to his country house for the weekend to work on a new show. But gradually it becomes clear that no work is going to be done. In fact, Broustal and his much younger pretty wife seem to want Bastien for something very different than for his television talents. But can he accept their offer? Can he afford not to? Things go awry and lead to a taut and frenzied finish. Written by

Mon Idole is one of those overlong comedies that's okay but nothing you really need to see, as TV assistant Guillaume Canet (who also directed) finds himself invited to spend an increasingly nightmarish weekend with the head of the production company (Francois Berléand), ostensibly to work on a pitch for a new series but in reality to play court jester to the jaded manipulator and his young wife a sort of Pitch le Fokkers with considerably less star power. Diane Kruger, who usually seems less the face that launched a thousand ships than the wood they're made of, is fine for once, although it's never a good sign when an actress stands out because she's not bad for a change.
