Storyline

It's the end of the school year. The long-awaited moment of summer vacation has arrived. Little Nicolas, his parents, and Grandma head to Hotel Beau-Rivage by the seaside. On the beach, Nicolas quickly makes a new set of friends: there's Blaise, who isn't on vacation because he lives in the area, Fructueux, who likes everything, even fish, Djodjo, who doesn't speak like them because he's English, Crépin, who cries all the time, and Côme, who always wants to be right and who is very annoying. But Nicolas also gets to know Isabelle, a little girl who always looks at him with big, round and worried eyes, and who Nicolas believes his parents want to force him to marry. Misunderstandings accumulate, blunders begin. One thing's for sure: for everyone, this will be an unforgettable vacation.

Goofs

The sandcastles built by the architect are built using sand other than beach sand. This can be seen by the difference in the colour of the sandcastles and the surrounding beach sand, even allowing for the addition of water. See more »

Was there 'a la Jaques Tati?
25 January 2019 | by mmunierSee all my reviews

I was not too enthusiastic when I started to play the tv recording of this film, but I kept watching. First I thought I recognised an actor from 'chez les chtis' Yes it was Kad Merad. I kept watching and for me things brightened. The beaches footages reminded me a little of J tati's movie. I would not say it would be a very popular movie of today's taste and you'd need a few years under your belt to appreciate some moments from it. I did, I did like the way it was different from what's on today. And to each its own! I see some critics speaking of mediocrity, perhaps it could be seen this way. But it is a comedy and it does gets laughs out of you unless you're made of stone. So this is what a comedy is designed to do - Someone else saw live animal tortured! Really...What kind of world to they want to live in? Have they ever stepped on an ant? Democracy will become Democrazy. Don't take anyone's word for it find it for yourself and perhaps like me you'll have a great but forgettable time
