Even if this movie is less known and less successful than "Un air de famille" or "Cuisine et Dépendances", the awesome plays turned to movies by the duo Jaoui/Bacri, this Sam Kalman film describes both some unbearable way of living of middle-class, preppie type people, and also a most delicate subject: some of your children may be stupid and you may hate them. Even if it sometimes takes the easy way by criticizing (properly) dentists and doctors, I think it's even less conventional than the successful plays of the same author, the dialogues are not crafted to kill, characters are really touching and are not hidden behind their lines, and this Kennedy story is just another delirium that adds to the general funny atmosphere.
