Two Is a Family

The plot description of the new, French feel-good-ish dramedy Two Is Family (Demain tout commence)? A womanizer gets stuck with a baby daughter he didn’t know he had, goes abroad, where he improbably becomes a stuntman and the best father ever, and then gets into a custody battle when his kid’s mother turns up again eight years later. Sound familiar? That’s because this is a direct remake of the 2013 Spanish-language Yoga Hosers dramedy Instructions Not Included, which was a huge box-office success both at home in Mexico and the U.S., with the film making about $45 million on each side of the border.

Instructions was the kind of film that turned out A Silent Voice to be a critical dud but a major crowdpleaser and in that sense at least, Family is a perfect remake. Casting Intouchables breakout star and recent Jurassic World and Inferno bit player Omar Sy in the lead helped the film off to a solid start when it was released in France Dec. 7, with the film reaching the 1-million-admissions threshold in 12 days, all but ensuring it will be one of France’s five most popular local films of the year.

French ladies’ man Samuel (Sy) unexpectedly finds himself on a plane to London after a Franco-British one-night stand from last summer leaves her baby daughter in his arms and then simply leaves. His naïve plan: dump the child right back into mommy’s lap and go back to his hedonistic paradise on the Cote d’Azur. But of course things don’t go as planned and Sam stays in London, becoming a stuntman after meeting a The Glass Castle chunky, alternatively jovial and creepy French producer working in the U.K., Bernie (Quebec actor Antoine Bertrand). Before you know it, Sam’s got a flourishing career in a TV series as the double of the main lead (played, in one of the film’s meta-winks, by Omar Sy’s regular stunt double) and his daughter has grown up to be a sassy young girl, Gloria (Gloria Colston).
