Joey Wellman, a cantankerous American cartoonist, accepts an invitation to come to an exhibition in Paris, because his estranged daughter Elsie is a student there.
He arrives with his girlfriend Lena, and very soon wants to go home as the culture shock is too much for him. Elsie puts off meeting him because she is busy trying to find Professor Christian Gauthier, in order to get him to read her thesis on Flaubert. However Gauthier is enamored with American culture, and invites Joey and some other Americans to his mother's house for the weekend.
Elsie arrives at the gathering in time for the masquerade party and to see her father beginning to appreciate French culture. Add content advisory. Did you know Edit.
Trivia Writer Jules Feiffer claimed that the plot of the film originated with the amused bafflement he, as an American, felt about the intense admiration shown by French intellectuals towards the films of Jerry Lewis.
User reviews 2 Review. Top review. Terribly obnoxious and unfunny. One of Alain Resnais' more mainstream films, including American actors and characters in a mostly English language script. It is deservedly forgotten. Quite frankly, it's garbage.
Adolph Green of the musical team Comden and Green, who worked on Singin' in the Rain and The Bandwagon plays a curmudgeonly Cleveland comic strip writer who is invited to Paris for a gallery show on American comics. He hopes to finally see his daughter Laura Bensonwho hasn't spoken to him in the two years she's been going to college there.
Benson finds her father lowbrow, though, and ditches him, hoping she can finally catch up to her professor Gerard Depardieu. Unbeknownst to her, Depardieu is secretly a huge fan of American comic strips, and ends up inviting Green and his girlfriend Linda Lavin to stay with him at his mother's country estate. Benson, when she finds out, decides to follow them. The problems with this movie are many, but the worst one is that Green is an enormous, enormous jerk. He spends the whole film yelling at everybody, frequently complaining at as loud a volume possible about how horrible the French are.
You know there's a problem when you want to bludgeon the main character of a movie to death within ten seconds of his first appearance. Second, Benson is a complete bitch. I think part of it is that the actress whom I think is French, since she only seems to have appeared in other French films is awful. She comes off as totally emotionless and unnecessarily mean though I can understand why she wouldn't want to be anywhere near her father, she treats Lavin, who always comes off as a nice person, like crap for no reason.
Third, Green's cartoon cats often pop up in animated thought bubbles to tease both Green and Benson. This is especially unfunny and hugely obnoxious, particularly since Green voices the cats with his awful, nasal voice. The film does get a little better as it goes on. The cartoons fade away and Green, who starts to appreciate France after he meets Depardieu, calms the Hell down.
But it's still utterly unfunny and I'd like to forget it was ever made. Details Edit.American Authors - I Wanna Go Out (Audio)
