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 »

This movie is amazing. It is not often that I go to see a foreign movie, but people had told me how good this one was so I just went. And I do not regret it.
The actors all seem to fit perfectly for their part. I found it hard to imagine how they were any different in real life. One gets kind of nostalgic, seeing those children in their school uniforms. The story is just wonderful, and it is really, really humorous, the entire audience laughed throughout the movie. It is not that kind of funny in the way normal Adam Sandler and those Hollywood movies are. It has something more to it, it is not, well, hollow (cannot really describe it). The way the director has got this set up, to see the world the way a kid sees it, to look into what's going through their mind, this is all just wonderful. I walked out of there with a little smile on, I was all fuzzy after having laughed so much.
I would really like it if my town would start showing more foreign movies like this one.
