It took me awhile to figure out that "Dinner for Schmucks," a new movie starring Steve Carrel and Paul Rudd, was more than just a summer comedy with an unappealing promotional poster. It's also a remake of a very famous French flim called "Le dîner de cons." In fact, haven't a fair number of French films been remade in America? A few that quickly came to mind were:
Mon père, ce héros - My Father the Hero
La cage aux folles - Birdcage
Trois hommes et un couffin - Three Men and a Baby
A Google search turned up an article that better outlines this Franco-American cinematic phenomenon, lists numerous French films that have been remade in the States, and includes video clips. Anything missing from the list?
