Papa ou Maman 2

Film directed by Martin Bourboulon

Here is the Following chapter of Daddy or Mommy, one of the top films at the French box office! In the first movie, Vincent (Laurent Lafitte) and Florence (Marina Foïs) get a divorce after 20 years of marriage. In this situation most parents would argue to get custody of the children, but they both want to get rid of them. Since the kids have to decide with whom they want to live with, their parents try to discourage them with all sorts of tricks.

After putting their kids through hell, two years later, Vincent and Florence both have a new life and new partners. However, their offspring comes up with the most peculiar idea: that they should get back together. In other words, war is declared anew.

Instead she tries to avoid the curse and plans to marry some random guy in Denmark and immediately get a divorce, so that she can become Pierre’s wife without any anxiety. In the plane she meets Jean-Yves, an intrusive tourist guide that she quickly rejects. But when she arrives at destination for the marriage of convenience, the guy does not show up and Jean-Yves becomes her new plan for her fake wedding. The only problem is that the improvised fiancé turns out to be clingier than expected…
