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 »

The movie was so cute and fun. It has been 4 years since it was released and I wonder where is its sequel, because this movie deserves one or maybe those who loved it will anticipate like I do. The characters were very well created and developed, the timing of jokes was excellent. When I saw Kad Merad on the first frame of his appearance in this movie, I could not control myself from laughing and knew it would be an awesome and I gonna have a nice time with it. And I did.
This movie was based on a series of French children's books. It reminds me 'Diary of a wimpy kid', about a kid who had his own imagination and mistook the occasion he witnessed with his parents which makes him to act quickly to make it right. So the little Nicolas forms a little gang from his school friends and theirs adventure is ours (audience) fun ride.
As a children movie fan I loved it from my heart and wanted more of it which was lasted for just 90 minutes. Watching a movie like it make me a kid, sometime it will recall my childhood memories. I feel I am so lucky to see it and hope you won't miss after reading this review. Highly recommended for kids movie fans.
