Movie Info

This dark, slightly absurdist comedy from France topped the French box office in 2009, becoming a local phenomenon. It is narrated by Nicolas (Maxime Godart), an eight-year-old boy supremely happy with his loving, doting parents and a colorful group of friends. It seems that life couldn't possibly improve - until Nicolas eavesdrops on his folks and surmises that his mother is pregnant. Horrified, he envisions a scenario where a new baby brother arrives and crowds him out of the house, leaving his parents with no time to care for him. Nicolas and his friends then cook up a series of wild schemes to dispose of the baby. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi

    Completely brilliant! I've read a few of the Petit Nicolas stories in my French class, and I have to say, regardless of that, this movie was absolutely wonderful! So hilarious. I was actually roaring with laughter on multiple occasions. The children were all so precious and entertaining. The entire plot and concept as a whole was just lovely. Very very good, and I will gladly watch this again. What did this movie teach me? You can't hit a kid with glasses, but once the glasses come off.....

    Highly recommend Nowadays kids movie follow the same pattern, some how involving a secret pop star, or "The Rock", I had to search all the way, and find a french movie that surprised me, it showed me that this generation still has hope, but this time in french This might be one of the best french films ever, the simple story, one eyed comedy keeps the story fluctuating. Little stories interconnect with each other, the story of a couple who hope to have a promotion by inviting the boss for dinner, and the story of their kid, Nicolas and his imagination, together with his gang, in total making this an amazing film highly developed characters, an amazing script and cinematography, makes this one of the best french films, and children busters out, so don't keep taking your kid to watch "the Rock" being a tooth fairy, or take him to see some Disney Musical, make him a cult kid and take him to see, french films.

    This was an adorable movie! So, some things were a teensy bit over the top, but the premise was very cute and led to some funny moments. In fact, the laugh out loud factor was nearly embarrassing on the plane flight. :S

    Fun to watch! A family film that does not insult the intelligence of adults. The kids are all brilliant and they play their parts perfectly.
