Rule #1 for any romantic comedy is that you have to like the characters. And, in this way, "La Parisienne" is certainly no great rom-com. It's characters are, to put it bluntly, annoying. Michel (Henri Vadal) is a pig who has just married the most beautiful woman on the planet--yet keeps mistresses. Brigitte (Brigitte Bardot) is a stalker who KNOWS Michel is a pig but tricks him into marrying her--and then spends the rest of the film after marrying him treating him like dirt. This is supposed to be funny and romantic? So what do you have apart from two annoying characters? Well, a nice cameo by Charles Boyer, Bardot is GORGEOUS and there are lots of nice bits of scenery in the south of France. But together, these still aren't enough of a reason to watch this film.
