Storyline

Didier Travolta (Franck Dubosc) is a 40-year-old disco music fan who has no job, lives with his mother, and has a son he hasn't seen for a while in Britain. The mother of his son refuses to send him their son for the holidays unless he can offer him a real vacation, not just going to bars of the French port city of Le Havre. As the jobless Didier has no money, the only way he can see his son is by winning a dance contest organized by his friend Jackson (Gérard Depardieu), with the prize a vacation to Australia for two. Didier persuades his two former dancing buddies (Samuel Le Bihan and Abbes Zahmani) to get the once-famous "Bee Kings" group back on the dancefloor. Years have passed and they need a dance coach (Emmanuelle Béart) to get them ready for the competition. They soon find out that even if they once were the best, times have changed. Jobs, wives, love, ridiculous looks, old-fashioned clothes, talented contestants... Can they reclaim their past disco glory? Written by Anonymous

Very Enjoyable
12 May 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

We found this very enjoyable comedy a minor gem. Concur the acting is well over the top and very hammy, but IMHO it was not meant to be anything else.

I have always been a big fan of Samuel Bihan and must pick him out for particular praise as he probably had the most physically demanding role.

All the big stars seemed to enjoy their respective roles as none demanded any true acting skills, but as comedies go it is very good.

So ignore the negative comments made prior to this review and relax to an undemanding typical French comedy more akin to the best French comedies of the 1980's.

And Emmanuelle Beart is truly beautiful, with a big(sic)plus of the French giant Gerard Depardeau.
