When Shannon and her mother come into the restaurant, Shannon says she would like to have the Chicken a la Framboise. Her mother says no because Chicken a la Framboise is "Chicken with Strawberries" and she is highly allergic to strawberries. Chicken a la Framboise is "Chicken with Raspberries". Framboise in french means raspberry, strawberry in french is fraise. See more »

Avoid this like the plague!
20 April 2005 | by See all my reviews

Possibly the worst comedy that I have ever seen. I cannot even think of an age group that might enjoy this cliché-ridden garbage. I made the huge mistake of buying the DVD and I wanted to enjoy it. In the event, I never smiled once whilst watching it.

If you collect all the hackneyed old scenes from every comedy film that you can think of and string them loosely together, you do not have a comedy. If you then get all of the adults to act like idiots and make the children be irritating, you still don't have a comedy. Comedy is all about comic timing. Don't expect any of that here!

It pains me that in this day and age, with all the wonderful comedy of recent years, these particular film-makers appear to have learnt nothing whatsoever! Truly dire! Recipe For Disaster? It certainly is!
