Quotes

Monsieur Tessier: Now I know that in some of your universities the students say, oh no - we don't want literature, not philosophy for us this year. This year we think we will study... mushrooms. Mushrooms? I have news for you. This year, at my school, you will not study mushrooms!

A pleasant diversion.
3 July 1999 | by (Marietta, GA, USA) – See all my reviews

This is the kind of movie the term "lighthearted" was made for. A group of American students is attending school in Paris and spending their time running around seeing the sights and finding new loves. The script may not be perfect but it's a fun and enjoyable time.

The best thing this movie has going for it is the fine French actress (and stunning beauty) Marie France-Pisier, who plays the school's headmistress and the object of one of the young men's attention and affection. Also good in this film is Blanche Baker, an underappreciated actress.
