We just got some more information for some upcoming titles from Universal Home Video in. Scheduled for April 25 is The Dinner Game a film by Francis Veber about a group of friends who meet every Wednesday night to have dinner together. They also have game that goes with the dinner. Every week each one of them is challenged to bring along the dumbest person he can find. The resulting conversations are supposed to entertain the hosts and at the end of the night they vote for the idiot of the evening. Pierre, the host of the entire event is fully convinced that his champ will steal the show and win the title, but things go horribly wrong, leaving him stuck with his own “idiot”.
“The Dinner Game” will be released in a fullframe transfer with its original French language track and English subtitles. The DVD will also contain the movie’s theatrical trailer and retail at $24.98.
