Storyline

Jacques, steward de Air France, accepte de garder un paquet pour le compte de Paul. Le paquet sera remis chez lui à la maison, où il vit avec deux amis, Pierre et Michel. Mais Jacques oublie de prévenir ses amis et part en Thailande pour un voyage de travail. Effectivement, un paquet arrive, mais il s'agit d'un couffin avec un bébé, Marie, fille de Sylvia et de Jacques. Les deux, et ensuite les trois hommes, se retrouvent piégés entre engagements de travail, bouillies et couches. Et ensuite, un vrai paquet arrive: il contient de la drogue. Et avec le paquet, d'autres ennuis, avec les propriétaires de la drogue et la police à sa recherche. La vie des trois célibataires a vraiment changé. Written by Baldinotto da Pistoia

Well made
23 June 2001 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

I saw the American version of this movie a long time ago, but as I remember it, I prefer this original French version.

The acting is good, especially Roland Giraud. The first half of the movie is simply hilarious. It's even better when you know french, because some of the fun always get lost during translation.

Still good today.

Out of 100, I gave it 77. That's **½ on a **** stars rating system.

Seen at home in Welland. June 23th, 2001. Marko Roy.
