Poor Hollywood...
18 August 2000 | by See all my reviews

This is a remake of a wonderful French movie, Trois hommes et un couffin, by director Coline Serreau. When the French version have charm, this Hollywood massacre becomes boring. It's not the first time that Americans try to catch the French humor of great French films. A lot of Pierre Richard films have this treatment. So is Nikita and a lot of others. Every time, it's a disaster. So, please, if you really want to see a funny and creative movie, go see Coline Serreau version. I give one out of ten for this, and 10 out of 10 for the French version.
