Trivia

At one point one of the boys brings French magazine "Pilote" which features part of the first "Asterix" comic story and the boys get the idea to scam people into thinking they invented the magic potion from "Asterix". Both "Asterix" and "Le petit Nicholas" where created by Rene Goscinny in 1959. The scam also mimics the scene from the very first Asterix story where Getafix the Druid and Asterix trick the Roman soldiers into thinking they drink the magic potion. See more »

Genuinely good
10 April 2011 | by See all my reviews

This is a very entertaining movie.Loved the opening credits were very creative. Kids looked adorably innocent when they are discussing about grave issues, which are actually mostly imaginary.Looks like the movie was made from real incidents or observations.The potion looked very similar to something I had made during school days, when I got hooked in Chemistry . Characters were well made, consistent and well played.Streets in France looks so beautiful.The beauty of the movie comes from its close resemblance to real life. Scenes of the medical check up, parallel parking, boss visiting the house were hilarious. Good background music too.Well crafted by creative minds,and great story.
