Le Grand Restaurant (1966)

Grand Restaurant, Le (1966, FRA) C-90m. SCOPE ** D: Jaques Besnard. Starring Louis de Funès, Bernard Blier, Maria-Rosa Rodriguez, Venantino Venantini, Roger Caccia, Juan Ramírez, Folco Lulli, Guy Grosso, Michel Modo, Paul Préboist, Olivier de Funès. Mildly entertaining comedy about tyrannical restaurant owner de Funès, who gets involved in the kidnapping of a South American president. Likable French actors try their best with episodic script (which de Funès cowrote). Blier would later be questioning de Funès as a commissaire again in the classic JO (1971). Also known as THE BIG RESTAURANT, WHAT'S COOKING IN PARIS?
