Storyline

On her 35th birthday, Lucie realizes there is something missing in her life: a baby. But nature requires a male partner to conceive life. So she bets with her friends that she can find Mr. Right in less than three months. She will therefore meet the entire palette of the male gender, from the typical macho to the much-too-perfect man.

Not an oscar deserver, but funny and entertaining!
25 June 1999 | by (Quebec) – See all my reviews

This movie is really nice. It is fun to see all those Quebec actors mixed up into one movie. Marie-Lise Pilote offers a great performance into a role that suits perfectly to her. A must see, but not the movie of the year either!
