Rather bad...
19 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love french movies especially comedies. But this one I did not like. I am not sure why I actually finished watching it. Sucked from the finger story failed to deliver anything other but nonsense. Nothing in this movie is believable including characters. It is hard to believe that a wealthy uncle can possibly be that dumb. The "family" is shown as a bunch of real idiots. I never figured out the "childhood accident" story. Nothing is funny either. The acting is not bad, but nothing special. The only scenes in this movie I enjoyed was the view from the uncle's house. I think IMDb should cut a slack for a first reviewer who can't come up with 10 lines.
