Box office magnet Christian Clavier dials up the comedic curmudgeon as Michel Leproux, a self-centered, womanizing dentist who has just happened upon a rare jazz record he’s been hunting down for years. All he wants to do now is get home, slap his precious find on the turntable, and put his feet up. There’s just one problem: every other thing in his life, including but not limited to an impertinent wife, a guilt-ridden mistress, an annoyingly earnest son, and an eccentric housekeeper played by Almodovar mainstay Rossy de Palma. To say nothing of the fact that today just happens to be the day for the building’s annual residents’ soirée. This rollicking, farcical, slapstick, and flirtingly surreal game of musicus-interruptus is enough to drive a patient, honest, generous man to desperation. If only our dear Monsieur Leproux were one of those things.
