Storyline

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 poco loco

Trivia

When Kate (Meg Ryan) asks Luc (Kevin Kline) are first talking in their room at Cannes, the French song "Verlaine" is playing. The track's lyrics include the wording "les sanglots longues des violons de l'automne blessent mon coeur d'un langueur monotone" which translate into English as "the long sobs of the violins of autumn wound my heart with a monotonous languor". These words are from a poem called "Verlaine", and had been used in 1944 to form the code phrases that alerted the Resistance to the Allied invasion of France, and were depicted in the earlier epic World War II movie The Longest Day (1962).

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

Kate: Do what you want, it's a free country... isn't it?
Luc: Uh, oui.

Beautiful, simply beautiful
6 September 2004 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

I just watched this and fell in love! Everything about it was entrancing! Superb acting, fantastic scenery, and you have got to love that soundtrack! I absolutely love Kevin Kline, and he nailed it again in French Kiss. Can I help it if I like him as a French man? Meg Ryan was astoundingly funny. Comedic performances were perfect and the romantic side was so sweet it will break your heart! If you get the chance to see this, whether it be on TV or whatever, watch it. It will make you laugh out incredibly loud (ahem, like me) and cry at its ending (again, like me). I give this a 10 out of 10. But, then again, that is just me. You'll have to check this out to be the judge of that yourself.
