Very Average
24 July 2002 | by (Ile-de-France / Paris Region, France) – See all my reviews

Rather average and disappointing film about three men who go on holiday to rent a house on the west coast of France and find out their wives

have disappeared leaving them alone to look after the kids.

What could have been the pretext for a good comedy turns out to be a rather tedious film, once the initial novelty has worn off. Some funny moments, notably in the mens' trying to cope with the children.

Much as I like Richard Berry, the whole thing becomes rather boring half way through as the weak plot tires and ideas become scarce

French Comedy has done far better in the past through the camera lenses of Gérard Oury,Francis Veber and Claude Zidi, and hopefully will do better in the future, but the number of really funny films today in this country can be counted on the fingers of one hand !!

The DVD is currently available in France but as usual without subtitles !
