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.

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 »
How did it go?
He's very impressed by you. He thinks you're a great guy.
What a relief.
And I told him I'm staying with you.
Isn't he jealous?

I told him you were dying.

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 »
A teenage girl (Katherine Heigl) on vacation in the Bahamas with her divorced father (Gerard Depardieu) tries to impress a potential boyfriend by saying that her father is actually her lover.
There are a number of strange things about this film. Fans of director Steve Miner might be interested, and Katherine Heigl fans may want to see her first big role. And then there is Depardieu, who was huge forever but might not have been as big in America. I first saw this film, as many people did, when it first came out, but it actually is more enjoyable now (2016) because of where those involved ended up.
But really, is it not strange to make a family film about an accused child molester? We probably should not be laughing at a man who is repulsing his friends because they think he is sleeping with a child (who also happens to be his daughter).
