Termite-eaten flick.
30 June 2018 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

That such hackneyed screeenplays can find a producer is beyond me .

A divorced man wants to win back his daughter ,aged 12;there will be a triathlon ,and she urges him to enter the competition;during this big sporting event,she will be part of the majorettes.And,you would never guess it, this broken man meets an unmarried pregnant woman he falls in love with .So an agonizing feeling of suspense sets in: will the daughter recognize her father's merit?Will dad shine in his triathlon? Will he be able to build a reconstituted family?

Let's be serious!this kind of story ,the average viewer has seen it a hundred times or more ;you can see what the characters are up to from a mile off.

The writers coud have got a little humor into their script: the termite pest control and the stupefied look of the old couple could have been very funny ;but the lines fall flat and these inspections,which verge on swindle ,are not exploited at all.

A pest control officer would not recommend " Du Goudron Et Des Plumes" (= tar and feathers)
