When Dell and Philip go paragliding, Philip still has his beard. After Dell shaves the beard off, there are more paragliding scenes at the end of the movie. It looks like the first paragliding because the men assisting them are the same guys and everyone is wearing the same clothes and helmets. But this time, Philip has no beard. See more »
Did you know about this? Huh?
I'm sorry, P. I'm sorry you gotta have a surprise party in your huge mansion. You gotta get a bunch of expensive gifts from your rich friends. I'm sorry that you got a thoughtful executive. Some of us got real problems. I'm fighting to see my son.
Oh. I'm sorry, D. Is a single afternoon with your son not enough to repair the years of neglect?
Watch your mouth, man.
And whose fault is it that you can't see him?

Remakes happen, as well as re-imaginings. However they make sense when a director/writer have something more to add to the story, especially as beautiful as this one in a French original. Here we got a back to back copy of a quite recent movie. A movie, that was a huge international hit, and is well known outside of the USA, so a so recent remakwe, ekhm, copy, is the more baffling. This is not the case of The Lion King, which was inspired by an obscure Japanese cartoon, and a wider audience got a chance to known the story. THe original made over 400 millions of dollars worldwide...
