During one scene in Les visiteurs: la révolution a character says

Tout est mauvais! C'est un festival! ("Everything's wrong! It's a festival!")

Is this a reference to something else? If so, what? I mean, I think it is a fun reference to an external source, but can't remember which.

It's probably a french reference. I've included a video from the movie in this tweet (french).

    I'm really not sure what you're asking. Can you please explain more completely? – Catija Aug 14 '16 at 20:02

    @Catija - He's asking what that quote is a reference to. – ghostdog Aug 14 '16 at 20:24

    However, @SamuelTb - It might be helpful if you can give us the context of the quote (who said it, about what, to whom, etc.). Thanks! – ghostdog Aug 14 '16 at 20:25

    What is it about the line that makes you think it references something else ... as someone with a very basic grasp of french, I can't hear anything in the way he says it. Does it just 'ring a bell' for you? – iandotkelly Aug 14 '16 at 22:16
  • Thanks. The character says to the innkeeper that the meal is bad. @iandotkelly yes, the quote « C'est un festival ! » and the way he says so sounds familiar to me. – Samuel Aug 20 '16 at 15:57
