[The stage play was based on a real game played by some in French society.] I think that kind of mean spirit is universal, unfortunately, ... That's why (in 'The Dinner Game') I try to punish the guy who does the inviting.

The game is to invite the biggest jerk you know to a dinner. So everyone brings jerks, and the best one wins.

I love buddy comedies, ... I love when two guys who have nothing in common are suddenly in the same bag. It's kind of like a cat and a dog in the same bag. It's the kind of stories I prefer.
