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

You should be leaving
10 July 2010 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

With such works as "disco" ,the French comedy hits rock bottom.A very poor screenplay which accumulates all the clichés ;best example:of course the hero is a divorcée .You can see what the characters are up to a mile off : the hero takes dancing lessons;of course the teacher is a babe (Emmanuelle Béart) ;of course the hero .... ..They have a disco dance contest ;of course the hero...I've always thought Depardieu was an overrated actor and it's not this movie which will make me change my mind.As for Dubosc,as I cannot say something nice....

It's nice to see Annie Cordy again ,even in a small part.Fans of singer Francis Lalanne,watch out:he has a cameo.A stupid one .

Nostalgia is not what it used to be.One can save ,at a pinch,two scenes: Dubosc trying to open his suitcase and the "exam" his pal takes.
