Storyline

Two students, Antoine, the son of a Southern pedal boat renter, and Marie, the daughter of a Paris railway executive, have got engaged in secret. They are now willing to clarify the situation and decide that their parents should get to know one another before they marry. The summer holidays seem to be the ideal opportunity for that and Antoine invites Marie's family to come and stay for a while at their home in the South. Unfortunately, things do not go too well between the stark Malhouin and the extroverted Lartigue and the relationships soon come close to the breaking point. As for the lovebirds, they are not spared as jealousy gets in their way... Written by Guy Bellinger

Émile Malhouin: What do we bring to our children?
Adolphe Lartigue: Well, perhaps you haven't realized it yet, but this boy, he does learn. It matters to me. What's more, I've given him a good education.
Émile Malhouin: ...
Adolphe Lartigue: Do you doubt it?
Émile Malhouin: Yes, I doubt it. In fact no, I don't. I've done just the same myself. I've done my utmost for Marie. But what do we teach them exactly? Nothing! Yes, to have good table manners, not to swear, to say good morning, good bye, and nothing more. But otherwise...?

Jean Gabin takes a vacation.....
4 August 2006 | by See all my reviews

...at Fernandel's place.Most amazing thing ,their names appear at the end of the list of the actors in the cast and credits ,but in bigger letters and on the dome of the Pantheon! These two actors deserve a niche in the French cinematographic pantheon for ,even when the screenplay and direction are almost worthless,they survive! Gabin is a grumpy Normand who takes his vacation on the Côte d'Azur at a voluble Fernandel's house :his daughter (a gorgeous Marie Dubois whose part is unworthy of her)is to marry the Southerner Frenchman's son (played by Fernandel's own son,Franck).The two soon-to-be fathers-in-law do not get on very well and both the folks and the young lovebirds will have problems.

What is definitely lacking here is a great writer ,someone like Audiard or Jeanson.Few scenes are really funny and the movie is undistinguished.
