l the dinner game 280x400 Im Having A Party, BYOI !

BYOI stands for “Bring Your Own Idiot”, because you’re invited to Le Dîner de Cons!

This French film, directed by Francis Veber, stars Thierry Lhermitte as Pierre, your suave upperclassman with all of life’s riches, and Jacques Villeret as François, your bumbling idiot.

0 Im Having A Party, BYOI !

Every Wednesday, Pierre and his friends organize a dinner for “cons“. The English title of the film, The Dinner Game, doesn’t nearly do justice to the title. In French, “cons” means something along the lines of idiots, jerks, dumbos, fools, and schmucks. Translated, the film is called “Dinner for Idiots”.

At these dinners, Pierre and each of his friends invites a suitable idiot to bring to the table, where there is a silent competition to see who brought the biggest idiot. This Wednesday, Pierre had invited François over for an early “pre-interview” before presenting the idiot at dinner, but poor Pierre hurts his back and can barely walk.

It is laugh after laugh as François attempts to help Pierre through his pain. The best part is, none of the jokes are solely French-oriented! Even Anglophones watching the film with subtitles can follow and appreciate every moment as much as the next Francophone.

Even better news for the Anglophones, it appears that Dreamworks will start filming an English version of the film called, Dinner for Schmucks, in October of this year! It is rumoured to have director Jay Roach, star Paul Rudd as the equivalent of Pierre, and Steve Carell as the “schmuck”.

The Verdict:
Don’t wait for the English version to come out, Le Dîner de Cons/The Dinner Game is “piss-your-pants-funny” and you should watch it A.S.A.P. !

When my parents told me about how funny they thought this film was, I was skeptical, but once you realize that everyone, everywhere, of different classes experience the same problems you do, you will be a little less criticizing the next time you run into a fool.

Still clutching my side,

    The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

    The Nexus One uses an Adreno 200 GPU which is the weakest GPU among the high-end Android smartphones. The Droid 1 has a PowerVR SGX GPU, the same kind the iPhones have, and it’s much faster than the Adreno 200. If you’re going to compare against the iPhone 4 (PowerVR SGX 535), use a phone with hardware more on par with that phone. The Droid X/Droid 2 use the PowerVR SGX 530, the Galaxy S phones use the PowerVR SGX 540, and the Desire HD and G2 use the Adreno 205 which is close to the performance of the PowerVR SGX 540.

    It is proven time and time again that information’s worth is not the main factor which impacts article promotion results. Instead, the degree at which you manage to broadcast information as speedily as possible. And I’m not referring to article distribution, but to the fluency of your writing.
