Andre, a Frenchman divorced from his American wife takes his teenage daughter, Nicole, 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 »

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 »
Forget the lame, creepy plot and enjoy the nice scenery...and by that, I don't mean lush, tropical setting.
This was supposed to have been Gérard Depardieu's big American follow- up to 'Green Card' but for some reason audiences didn't really take to the flabby, big-nosed and heavily accented Frenchman a second time (go figure).
Other than Depardieu's gleefully ignorant take on "Thank Heaven for Little Girls", the jokes fall flat and he spends half the movie moping, playing phone tag with his absent girlfriend (an uncredited Emma Thompson) while remaining oblivious to everything else around him.
However, the movie is salvaged by the gorgeous 16 year old Katherine Heigl, parading around in beachwear and generally looking incredibly sexy. She's as fetching as ever well worth gawking at for ninety minutes.
If you're looking for laughs, look elsewhere but this is a treat for Heigl fans.
