De Funès plays the cantankerous compiler of a food guide. He steams through the movie, showing up in disguise at unsuspecting restaurants, brow-beating his son, a would-be circus clown, and scrapping with a junk food manufacturer. Zidi, aka Monsieur Box Office, dispenses a string of gastronomy gags from the world of the Dandy and Beano; while trolley loads of grub are swooningly shot by the great Claude Renoir.
