I'm a real Gérard Depardieu fan and I enjoyed this movie a lot.
To be cursed with a beautiful daughter, and all the wonderful things that can happen as you have to let her go and grow... well, it's tough. I've got three daughters and man, is it ever a difficult thing.
There's real love and affection in here, even though the daughter attempts to reject all that her father has to offer... eventually there is a meeting of minds, even though there's plenty of misperceptions and 'stories' that get told by the daughter...
"He's my lover", not my dad is where this gets to be hysterical... and to hear Gérard Depardieu sing that old show tune about loving little girls... well, it's hysterical.
His overreactions, her fabrications, the warmth and love amidst the utter humor of it all.
A whole family movie or better yet, a date movie.
Worth watching repeatedly. Well worth buying.

This is the best movie ever! When I first saw it I was only eight years old. But it has come to be one of my all time favorites. Being from a small town, I've noticed that very few people have even HEARD of this movie, which is why I believe its necessary to share this review with everyone. I am 15 now and can personalize with many of the things Nikki goes through in the movie. I can not even begin to say enough great things about it. It is most definitely a must see!

Format: VHS Tape
Fourteen year old Nicole's parents are divorced and her French father, Andre, is taking her on a tropical vacation to the Bahamas. Reluctantly, Nikki leaves her mother in New York City for the ten day getaway. She is at the height of her adolescence and she's anything but excited to be in a place that is filled with "old people" as she puts it to her father. While there, she meets seventeen year old Ben, and she's instantly infatuated with him. Wanting to impress her crush, Nikki tells him that she is slightly older than she actually is, and that her father is not her dad, but her boyfriend! Nikki persuades her father into going along with the whole charade, and soon enough, the entire resort finds out and they are absolutely repulsed by the fact that a man of Andre's age has such a young "girlfriend." Hilarious situations and a number of laughs make this movie a winner. One of my all time favorites.

A cute movie of a young girl coming of age. Unfortunately, director Steve Minor exploits young 14 year old actress Katherine Heigl in several scenes. For instance with a close up of her walking in a thong swimsuit at the pool and later while kissing her crush a shot of the wind blowing katherine's skirt up to reveal the teen in a pair of grey thong panties. Parents be advised.

This is one of my favorite movies, and it can be watched over and over again! It is set in the beautiful Bahamas, and has a great cast! The music is great, and so is the scenery! it really makes you want to go to the beach! It is a very fun, playful movie!

Father takes his gourgeous teenage daughter on an exotic trip which turns out a bit more exotic then he planned... Jerard Depardieu's character is, as always, somewhat awkward and naive but very kind-hearted father. Katherine Heigl is a sexy, delicious young New York girl who blooms and blossoms in the tropical sun... Great fun for all family!

This movie is great! I've loved it since it came out and I was little (I was 7 then and I'm 15 now). Not only is the story good in itslef, but I love movies in a tropical setting--they're fun to watch!

I don't think I'll ever ever ever
get sick of this movie!Sure, it's not
deep, and 14 year-old Katherine Heigl
isn't much of an actress(although she's gorgeous like hell).But Gerard Depardieu works
!The slapstick,sweet and silly but totally irresistable story (adolescent girl is on vacation with her father, and all is well until a slight misunderstanding gets the whole island to believe that Gerard Depardieu is Heigl's lover), works!
All the supporting roles and sidekicks work!
The humor is there, and it gets me laughing
everytime!Not a single moment drags, and I can't think of a better fluffy, feel-good, weekend flick!
