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
When Kate first met Bob (the "Eurotrash in an Armani suit" thief) at the George V Hotel, he spoke perfect English. When she met him again at his apartment when Luc was helping her get her things back, it seemed as if he spoke no English. Luc was used as a translator during the entire scene. See more »
A healthy person is someone who expresses what they're feeling inside. Express, not repress.
In that case, you must be one of the healthiest people in the world.

Near the end of the credits, we hear the voices of Kate and Luc. They talk, and then he sings the song "Beyond the Sea" en français. See more »
If there is a Kevin Kline in France, that is. This film is one of the better romantic comedies, maybe just because Kevin and Meg are perfect together. Both with excellent comic timing, and a chemistry that was quite wonderful.Jean Reno and Timothy Hutton round out a wonderful cast.
The soundtrack is fantastique-I own and listen to it often.
Hey-if my husband the NASCAR addict will sit,watch,laugh, and enjoy then I say guys can enjoy this too.
The ending scene is inspired, WHAT a kiss!
Definitely one to add to your DVD collection. I can't understand the low voting scores since I see so many positive comments here....
