An airline pilot and his wife are forced to face the consequences of her alcoholism when her addictions threaten her life and their daughter's safety. While the woman enters detox, her husband must face the truth of his enabling behavior.
Kate and Charlie have a perfect life planned out before them: buying a house, marriage, kids, the whole works. 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 calls off the wedding with Kate and she nervously boards a plane to get him back. She ends up sitting next to the petty French thief Luc Teyssier. He hides a stolen necklace and smuggled grape vine in her bag to get it through customs. Her bag is stolen, the necklace apparently lost, and Kate and Luc head to Cannes -- Luc to find the necklace and Kate get Charlie back. Along the way, Kate and Luc begin having feelings for each other -- which change the course of their lives. Written by
As the closing credits roll, Kate (Meg Ryan) asks Luc (Kevin Kline) to sing "that Bobby Darin song" and then begins to actually sing it . . . "Somewhere..." and Luc corrects her to state that it is a French song and begins to sing it in French, "La Mer". That song was originally written by Charles Trenet and then translated into English and recorded by Bobby Darin. See more »

Inspector Jean-Paul Cardon:
I need to ask him over a little matter of a necklace.
[fakes a laugh]
Oh, the necklace. He didn't declare it at the airport, did he? Will he have to pay a big duty?
[Jean-Paul looks at her impassively. Her smile fades, and she becomes serious]
Why don't you just arrest him?
Inspector Jean-Paul Cardon:
I'm old-fashioned. I owe him a debt greater than one of money.

I would basically just like to say that every woman that loves a good romantic comedy should see this movie. I have seen this movie probably over a hundred times and it never gets old. I have it on DVD and yet every time I happen to catch it on TV, I just have to watch it. I know most of the words by heart. Kevin Klein plays the perfect guy you almost love to hate because he makes you so angry for the dumb things he does then turns around and makes you swoon. And then of course Meg Ryan is always the perfect pick for these kinds of films. What can I say other than opposites really do attract in this fun-loving completely romantic movie. This is definitely a classic movie in my mind and a must buy, not rent.
