Coline Serrau, 1985
PG-13; 106 minutes; French with English subtitles

When a baby is left on their doorstep, hard-partying bachelors Pierre (Roland Giraud), Jacques (André Dussollier), and Michel (Michel Boujenah), experience a serious lifestyle change. Instead of carousing until dawn and chasing women, they're now changing diapers and learning the ins and outs of fatherhood. The baby's mother—one of Jacques' many conquests—has flown to the United States. In the meantime, the trio must protect the child from a mix-up with some drug runners.

Indulge yourself with a series featuring many of “My Favorite Films” including tales of romance, humor, suspense, satire, and heroism. Organized by Auditorium Manager Tina Gorski, a lifelong movie lover, the films in this series may hold special memories for you: no matter how many times you see them, they continue to draw you in one more time. The series features films since 1945. While many of these films are available through streaming, it’s always more fun to see them in the theater.

Make a day of it at the Modern and include extra time to visit the galleries and our special exhibitions. Enjoy lunch in Café Modern and then settle in for an afternoon screening, or plan for a coffee break afterwards with fellow film enthusiasts. 

Screenings are at 2 pm most Wednesdays in the Modern’s auditorium. Tickets are $5 (FREE for Modern members), available at the museum’s admission desk. Click here to purchase tickets online.
