This is a great movie & I hate reading subtitles in foreign films. Watch out for Vince Vaughn's take of the same concept.

Funny, touching and very original. A perfect date night movie.

Really great movie. Funny and touching. Patrick Huard is terrific. Fun to watch.

As his lover announces her pregnancy, a fortysomething slacker receives other life-changing news: 142 people, all of them the result of artificial insemination, have filed a class action lawsuit against him, their biological father.

Definitely one of the best films I've seen in years. Saw it at Monday Night at the Movies.

Patrick Huard is brilliant in this role! A great Canadian film, made in Quebec. The subtitles do not detract at all. I loved everything about this movie!!

Fantastic film - a feel good movie that makes you think. Wonderful acting, fabulous script. The fact that this film is in French with English subtitles did not detract from it one bit - make sure to see it!

What is this? A sleeper film? It's so good how can everyone not be talking about it. Even following it in English subtitles, it is so funny, so touching, I think I want to own a copy now just so that I can watch it again and again.

Un film drôle et léger - Des centaines de jeunes veulent soudain connaître l'identité de leur père biologique, un homme immature et peu fiable. Ce film a un côté poétique, mais repose sur des prémisses absurdes : pourquoi reproche-t-on à David d'avoir trop donné à la banque de sperme, mais ne critique-t-on pas les pratiques de la clinique?
