As closing credits roll, Kate asks Luc 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 (May 18, 1913 - February 19, 2001), and then translated to English and recorded by Bobby Darin (May 14, 1936 - December 20, 1973). See more »

I absolutely LOVED and adored this movie! Seriously, its a funny romantic comedy, plus there are so many fun lines that you can quote--"All men are bastards!" My friends and I have made a habit of watching it every year! Its about a woman, Kate, who has her whole life planned out. Then, her fiancée goes on a trip to France, meets another woman, and calls home to break up with Kate. She decides to go win him back and gets on a plane. On the plane, she meets Luc, a french thief. She ends up going after her fiancée and everything seems to go wrong. Anyways, I would recommend it for just a funny, light hearted, fun with the girls type of movie.
