Andre (Gérard Depardieu), a Frenchman divorced from his American wife takes his teenage daughter, Nicole (Katherine Heigl), on vacation with him. She's desperate to appear as a woman and not a girl, so in order to impress a local boy, she makes up more and more ridiculous stories, starting with Andre being her lover. Andre is desperate to make Nicole happy and so plays along with her crazy games, and the stories they make up get increasingly bizzare.Written by
When the father is waiting up for Nicole, he sees her walking towards the house. He runs to the couch to pretend he was already asleep. When he kicks off his shoes, one lands on the floor by the couch while the other appears to bounce off the table onto the floor on the far side of the table. We see Nicole walk in. Then when we see the father again, the straps of one of his shoes can be seen on the table by the ashtray. See more »
Are you out of your mind? What the hell were you thinking about?
Of course I'm yelling! My daughter tells some stranger that her father is her, her...
Oh, God! I hate that word. It's so... so graphic. Who else thinks this?
A few of the other people.
How many of them?
All of them.
All of them! Incroyable! I've been walking around here with you the past few days. They think I'm child molester!
[she starts to cry]
You're yelling again.

In the US theatrical release, the bathing suite worn by Katherine Heigl, which was originally a thong, was digitally altered to cover her rear because it was thought American audiences would balk at such a young girl wearing such a thing. See more »
First time I watched this movie was on Laser Disc about 5 years ago. I liked it so much I taped it from HBO a couple of years later. The plot is a wee bit cliche, but there are many unexpectedly entertaining scenes, like when Gerard Depardieu (Andre) sang 'Thank Heavens for Little Girls', inoblivious to the fact that the audience thought he was a paedophile, and all those fights between Katherine Heigl (Nicole) and James Dalton (Ben) were just so... amusing, especially with Dalton being impossibly cute and all. Anyway, now I've finally bought the DVD and I'm re-watching it regularly.
