Screenwriter Danièle Thompson got the idea for the film by coming home one afternoon to find her then teenage daughter Caroline Thompson having organized a party at their home without telling her. She initially conceived the project as a potential Happy Days (1974)-style TV series. See more »
My french teacher allowed my class to watch the entire thing.It's a wonderful movie. There was one slow song that kept playing throughout the entire film, but at the moment I cannot recall the name of it. I give it a ten out of ten because it was funny, shocking, and even a smidge sad at points. Nowadays it would most definitely be rated PG-13 at least, because it does contain profanity and some sexual references. All of the foreign films shown to us in class were loved by all, such as Jean De Florette and Manon De la Source, which are both equally fabulous movies. I must say that I greatly enjoyed the lead female character's haircut. It really looked good on her.
