A well-cast but inconsequential family comedy that’s done very nicely at the local box office since its mid-June release, “My Father, My Mother, My Sisters and My Brothers …” surveys the emotional fireworks that ensue when the three children of a proud single mom are thrown together with their three different — and unsuspecting — fathers during a vacation in Mexico.

Successful biologist Anne (Victoria Abril) has two sons and a daughter, whose three dads know nothing of their offspring, and vice versa. When youngest son Victor makes a birthday wish to meet his pop, wily Grandma secretly arranges for her daughter and grandchildren — and all the dads and their wives, girlfriends and children — to “win” two weeks at a beach-front resort, in a bogus contest. Anne’s Prozac-popping best friend, Jeanne (helmer/co-scripter Charlotte de Turckheim), accompanies the clan. Antics are contrived but amusing, with loose ends neatly resolved, in the adequately lensed pic. Title is a line from the chorus of the French version of “If I Had a Hammer.”
