Not that bad really
22 July 2005 | by (Seattle, Washington) – See all my reviews

I just purchased a VHS copy of this movie and I'm a Lara Flynn Boyle fan anyway. I liked the Paris scenery shots and the interior shots of the beautiful hotel where the mother (Joanna Cassidy) and daughter (Lara Flynn Boyle) stayed and the indoor café shots. The plot wasn't that important to me, I mean a middle aged Frenchman/doctor having an affair with both the mother and the daughter seems normal (if you watch enough French movies, which I do) for Parisian theme, but I think the mother was in it for loneliness and the daughter to have a man spend money on her so she could continue her wild ways and if a love fling happened in the meantime, that was fine with the daughter. When you think of Paris, the last thing that comes to your mind is behaving and keeping your morals. These two women were out to have fun and any Frenchman loves women who love to have fun. Between the sights of the city, cafés, attractive Parisians and cast members, I think this movie was quite enjoyable and not meant to be taken seriously. There is non of the usual little "lets make fun of them" jabs between the French and the Americans which happens in many other movies of this type. Everyone gets along and this compliments the atmosphere of this movie. I liked it.
