Mistresses, secret lovers and mistaken identities collide in this hilarious tale of dinner in the French countryside. A smash hit in London and Paris. Bring tissues – you’ll laugh so hard you’ll cry!

Bernard is planning a romantic weekend at his charming converted French farmhouse with his side-dish, a Parisian model named Suzanne. The first order of business: get his wife, Jacqueline, on a train to see her mother! Second order of business: pick best friend Robert up from the train station because when you’re dating a model it’s hard to keep it a secret, so why bother… In an effort to impress his paramour, Bernard has hired a Cordon Bleu cook to prepare a flawless dinner. Of course, even the best-laid plans often go awry. Which is what happens when Jacqueline decides to skip Mother’s house after all. An evening of hilarious confusion ensues as each of the characters are forced to improvise at breakneck speed. Poor Bernard, however, will he get himself out of this pickle?

Is Don’t Dress For Dinner good for kids?
No. Marc Camoletti’s sequel to Boeing-Boeing, Don't Dress for Dinner continues the farcical adventures of Robert and Bernard in a fast-paced French sex comedy complete with scandalous affairs, spilled drinks and sexy costume changes aplenty.  Although the world of Don’t Dress For Dinner is cartoonish, it’s also chockful of sexual innuendos, parodied sex acts and adultery. The suggestive dialogue is no bawdier than a PG-13 movie, but it's best to hire a sitter and see the sexy romp with your friends, spouse, or secret lover—not your little ones.
