Edouard Molinaro directs this French farce with great élan. Renato (Ugo Tognazzi) runs a transvestite nightclub and has been living with the revue's star (Michel Serrault) for twenty years. When a son from his defunct marriage turns up and announces that he is going to get married, the gay couple are put into a tizzy. They try to pull off a meeting with the bride's parents (he is a Puritanical government official who heads a commission on moral order) by pretending that they are both straight and respectable. The encounter turns into a crazy and very funny comedy of errors.
