In Monaco, the playground of the extraordinary rich, Philip (Artus), Stella (Camille Lou) and Alexander (Luca Meliva) experience it with their father’s money. Wealthy developer Francis Bartec (Gerard Juneau) is both a widower and a workaholic; he shrugged as his bank account kids went crazy.
However, it got to him. Philip was supposed to inherit the family business instead of settling down. He chartered a private jet and had parties in Ibiza.
Stella goes shopping, complains, makes ridiculous demands on drivers, restaurants, and hairdressers. And generally exaggerates how stressful her rich life is. And Alexander hastily beat the wife (and daughter) of the last chancellor of the university.
Where his father financed the sports arena, to enrol his wayward youngest child. When Playboy leeches recklessly ask for Stella’s hand for Juan Carlos to marry. It’s too much for the Francis, and he also suffers a heart attack.
Some time in the hospital gave Francis time to think:
And two months later, the kids found that their cell phones suddenly died, and the money was frozen. (My bank card is blocked! “Philip is worried.” Sixth!”) Francis took his children on loan, threw them into his parents’ house, a cobweb villa in Marseille. And told them they were hiding from the crooked police.
It’s all a ruse, of course. Francis’ business and money are safe. But he wants to teach his children quite a lesson. “What do we do, dad?” Stella pleaded hysterically. “Something you’ve never done before,” she said to the children. “Job.” And when Francis wandered around Marseille looking for work, he turned to renovate his late father’s house.
Weeks passed. Now Philip is a tuk-tuk driver, Stella is a waitress, and Alexander acts as Francis’ apprentice revealing his home renovation skills. Everyone is learning the value of the hard-earned dollar, and father and son are spending more time together than they have in a long time.
But let the Playboy leech throw a wrench into the best-prepared plan. When Juan Carlos plays a play to reveal Francis’ plans in exchange for extortion money, Francis is forced to consider the unintended consequences of his little experiment in love.
French actor and the comedian Artus (born Victor Artus Solaro) had a quick mind and big heart in Pampered Brothers, plus some John Hill vibes (think War Dogs). Arthur is no stranger to Netflix; he hosted the reality show Cooking Disaster Crash Nailed It! France.
“I’ve thought of everything! We rent out hangars with carpets.”
Philips’ latest venture, Shoe Fits, is as ridiculous as its cigar vaping startup and the air-conditioned panties business it seeks to fund for Francis. But this one — where the underlings wear the rich man’s shoes for a week to ruin them — has that added myopic smell to class money.
The thing is, Philip is not money – his father. And the Pampered Brothers have fun figuring out how stupid and inviolable Philip and his brothers can be before Francis does his mini-finance experiment. It’s even more fun when plans are in place and Philip visits the labour office. Skills? not experience?
No, but he wants to have a management position with the company car. Well, he will have it. Tourists from Marseille check their latest taxis here and there, and Philip is already the boss and driver himself!
Of course, when revealed the plan to raise this quasi-rich in little real life, it became an opportunity for Francis to learn a little. Some of the best moments in Pampered Brothers have nothing to do with having or not, but rather the quiet moments of the family bonds he forges with each of his children. He adds warmth and tenderness to the film that overrides the crude humour.
The complicated story of Pampered Brothers lost love recounts a few laughs, some affectionate, social commentary, and most importantly, a game to get home, finally the family dynamic that wins.
