Kate's fear of flying keeps her in Canada while Charlie goes to Paris for a medical convention. While there Charlie is smitten by the lovely Juliette.

He hides a stolen necklace and smuggled grape vine in her bag to get it through customs.

When Kate and Luc are first talking in their room at Cannes, the song "Verlaine" is playing; its lyrics include the words "Les sanglots longues des violons de l'automne blessent mon coeur d'un langueur monotone" ("The long sobs of the violins of autumn wound my heart with a monotonous languor"). These words from a poem by Verlaine had been used in 1944 to form the code phrases that alerted the Resistance to the Allied invasion of France, as depicted in The Longest Day (1962). See more »

Why are you chasing after him after what he's done to you?
Because I love him! And I'm afraid that if he doesn't come back that I'll... it'll hurt so much that I'll just shrivel up and I'll never be able to love anyone ever again.
You say that now, but... after a time, you would forget. First, you would forget his chin, and then his nose, and after a while, you would struggle to remember the exact color of his eyes, and one day you wake up and, pfft, he's gone: his voice, his smell, his face. ...

What's wrong with Kevin Kline's accent? My mother's family are from France and they talk like that...sort of. Well, who cares? This is a fun, fun film and I enjoyed it from title to credits. Meg Ryan in her low key but hyper way (now, if that seems like an oxymoron, watch her performance) is wonderful. BTW, I've set next to her character on an International flight... The story is great. Kline's character is lots of fun and Meg Ryan just melts you. Jean Reno is wonderful as the cop who helps Kline redeem his soul. Also, good work by Timothy Hutton and others. This is a fun film and I'm at a loss as to why the critics slammed Kevin Kline's accent... I found it believable because there are many French accents, depending on the region of origin and Kline is a good-- non, très, très bon acteur.
