"All-star, high-concept comedy "A Day at the Museum" proves that only the French could produce a feature consisting mostly of one-liners about Gauguin, Modigliani and the sexual practices of impressionist painter." (Variety)

Based on Jean-Michel Ribes's widely successful play, translated in many languages and played abroad after its two-year run in Paris, A Day at the Museum is a satire of the art world and its pretentious attitudes toward novelty or high culture" that also boldly pokes fun at neophyte art fans.
Boasting a dizzying cast of well-known actors, including Victoria Abril, Pierre Arditi, Josiane Balasko, Michel Blanc, André Dussolier, Fabrice Luchini or Muriel Robin, A Day at the Museum also features cameos from writer- director Tonie Marshall, producer Dominique Besnehard and former Canal Plus CEO Pierre Lescure. From a Minister of Culture admiring a photo exhibit of private parts to a group of provincial visitors obsessed with the Impressionists, A Day at the Museum is a joyfully mad succession of clever repartee and absurdist humor reminiscent of Monthy Python.
