smart family drama
21 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A smart drama about the contemporary American family. When mom and dad have to work, who watches the kid? When grandpa has to live with his son and daughter-in-law, how does he hang on to his self-esteem? And when the kid is getting too old to be watched by a baby-sitter but isn't old enough to take care of herself, conflict ensues. The chemistry between grandpa (Victor Argo) and his granddaughter (Celine Marget) is palpable. They are top-notch actors supported by a strong ensemble. Although it deals with a serious subject matter, there are many humorous moments in it. This is truly a film for the whole family to watch -- together. Soccer fans, especially, will enjoy. It reminded me a bit of "Bend it Like Beckham," but for the kids' set.
