Movie Reviews

Touching movie, coming of age with a twist or two...

"I'm a real Gérard Depardieu fan and I enjoyed this movie a lot.To be cursed with a beautiful daughter, and all the wonderful things that can happen as you have to let her go and grow... well, it's tough. I've got three daughters and man, is it ever a difficult thing.There's real love and affection in here, even though the daughter attempts to reject all that her father has to offer... eventually there is a meeting of minds, even though there's plenty of misperceptions and 'stories' that get told by the daughter..."He's my lover", not my dad is where this gets to be hysterical... and to hear Gérard Depardieu sing that old show tune about loving little girls... well, it's hysterical.His overreactions, her fabrications, the warmth and love amidst the utter humor of it all.A whole family movie or better yet, a date movie.Worth watching repeatedly. Well worth buying."

"This is a refreshing, cute, and funny family comedy which triuphs as a true original. Gérard Depardieu is hilarious as the clueless French father of a rebellious 14 year old brat. I never knew he was so good at comedy! Katherine Heigl is excellent in the role of his daughter, but acts and looks like a 17 year old, not a 14 year old, which is why this movie is so funny!"
A film you can just watch over and over again!

"I've seen this movie about 20 times now and I still go back for more. It's about this teenage girl who is facing adulthood and when she takes a trip with her father (Gerard Depardieu) to the Carribean, she falls in love for the first time with a local boy (Dalton James). In a desperate attempt to impress him, she spins a tale of how her father is her lover. A great movie, thumbs up!"
