Storyline

A hot young phone sex addict and his narcissistic opera diva mom. A dangerously agitated hustler and a half-dozen dangerously agitated hustlers who look just like him. A tittering neurotic who thinks she's Vanessa Redgrave and Vanessa Redgrave herself. Pot brownies, puke jokes, a gay dad, a flying lesbian, Jerry Hall, a dead body and a fetish for Brian DePalma movies! Anchoring the mayhem is Elisabeth Beaumont, an American opera star visiting Paris to perform "Turandot" and dabble in some belated mothering of her 23 year-old son Thomas. Thomas doesn't need mothering; he needs some good hot manhandling. And, in the best DePalma tradition, the quest for sex leads to voyeurism and voyeurism, leads to murder. From there, it's just a short path to therapy. Unfortunately, the psychiatrist that Thomas visits is a little on the dead side herself, and a nutty patient has taken her place.

"faux farce"? give me a break, S.V.P!
19 October 2003 | by (Washington, DC) – See all my reviews

We saw "Merci, Docteur Rey" last night (10/18/2003) at Reel Affirmations, the DC GLBT Film Fest (say that 10 times fast), and thought it was one of the most delightful screwball comedies ever made. Judging by audience reaction, we were not alone. It's a stretch to say that there are "intricate" plot twists; however, if you want a combination of Tracy & Hepburn with Lucy & Ricky, and then have the Monty Python gang thrown in along with Inspector Clouseau, then don't miss Docteur Rey.
