Trivia

At one point one of the boys brings French magazine "Pilote" which features part of the first "Asterix" comic story and the boys get the idea to scam people into thinking they invented the magic potion from "Asterix". Both "Asterix" and "Le petit Nicholas" where created by Rene Goscinny in 1959. The scam also mimics the scene from the very first Asterix story where Getafix the Druid and Asterix trick the Roman soldiers into thinking they drink the magic potion. See more »

" If there is one certainty in life, it's that nothing is so perfect, it can't ruined by a girl "
4 July 2010 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

When you select this film to share with your family, you will get two things from it. First, you have selected a surprisingly fun film which can be enjoyed by everyone. Director Laurent Tirard has selected a group of adults and French school children who bring to life a most charming book entitled " Little Nicholas. " Secondly, it's the cute tale of a young school Boy named Nicholas (Maxime Godart), who's little life is perfect. His father (Kad Merad) and mother (Valérie Lemercier both love their son, but he is often confused by their squabbles. Upon learning his mother will soon be expecting another child, Nicholas mistakenly believes they will have to take him to the woods and leave him there. Encouraged by his school friends, Nicholas begins taking steps to either have his parents assassinated or kill his baby sister. The entire confusing scheme is set in motion while his parents are trying to make life better for their son. Including an incredible task given by the teacher to her students to create an essay on what the students would like to become when they grow up. A small wonderful story complete with incredible dramatic antics, social comedy and a dazzling display of child induced situations. Except for the French Dialog which is often translated wrong the movie is a delight for all. ****
