French Fried Vacation 3 or Les Bronzés 3: Amis pour la vie ("The sun-tanned ones 3: friends for life", released in some English-speaking countries as Friends Forever[2]) is a 2006 French comedy film, and the sequel to Les Bronzés (1978) and Les Bronzés font du ski (1979). Like the first two films, it is directed by Patrice Leconte and stars mostly members of the theatrical/film troupe Le Splendid. Les Bronzés 3: Amis pour la vie follows up on the revelers from the first two films, now in their 50s.


The characters from the first two films get together again, 27 years on, in Sardinia. The obsession with sex has not disappeared but has taken a backwards step in the face of financial preoccupations. Bernard and Nathalie Morin (Gérard Jugnot, Josiane Balasko), are the parents of a son who reveals a homosexual liaison; J.C. (Michel Blanc) and Gigi (Marie-Anne Chazel), are living together; Jérome Tarayre (Christian Clavier), is divorced and seems unhappy in his new life; Christiane Weissmuller (Dominique Lavanant), has joined an esoteric sect and wants revenge on Jérome who messed up an operation he performed on her; Popeye (Thierry Lhermitte), has become the proprietor of the hotel where the group has re-assembled, and is as unfaithful as ever.




Despite the negative reviews, the film was number 1 at the French box-office in 2006.[3]
