Not only is this a French comedy, but it is also the MOST French movie ever made. It's is French in every way. A husband and wife take their teenage son and daughter to a seaside resort on the Riviera for the summer. The mother is totally French with her unshaved armpits, pot smoking, adulterous affair, and the way she so easily and casually talks about sex with her kids. The daughter leaves the resort early on in the film after she climbs onto the back of her boyfriend's motorcycle to ride to Portugal. The son has long, thick, curly hair and is completely sexually confused when he invites his gay friend, Martin, to stay for the summer. And the dad is the most French of them all. He watches Martin masturbate in the shower, and then reunites with his gay lover from his youth. Oh, and there's singing and dancing, too. If you love French comedies, this is the definitive. If, on the other hand, masturbation, adultery, and homosexuality make you uncomfortable, this may not be the film for you.
