Romantic, Charming... and Oh So French.
11 September 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A sweet little romantic comedy; inherently conservative at its core, but overall it's just so charming and sweet you can't do anything but smile through most of it. I don't know much French, but the credits tell me "A La Mode" translates to "In Fashion," and not "With Ice Cream," as was my first guess.

It's fluff, but it's French fluff, so if you're into romantic comedies and want something a little different, this might make a nice rental. Very French, R-rated (one scene of nudity), wacky fun that melts as soon as it's over, but is well worth the experience. 8/10, though that goes up or down depending on your enjoyment of fabric.
