A Disappointing Story Fails To Deliver
2 December 2017 | by atlasmbSee all my reviews

"To Paris With Love" fails to deliver what it ostensibly promises. First of all Paris gets only a few token frames of film, so this story could have been shot anywhere. Also, there is very little romantic love in this film.

A father and son visit Paris, where each plans to search for the other's mate. The father, a widower, is a nearly prehistoric forty- two years old. This characterization is one of the film's biggest problems. The son needs some experience. Well, fortunately for them, the two female subjects fall into their laps within the first few seconds of the film.

This simple--yet intriguing--storyline could have been magical in the hands of Shakespeare (or Woody Allen). Here, it's all predictable and transparent.

Alec Guiness, terrific in roles like "The Bridge on the River Kwai", falls flat here. The premise that he is such an old fuddy duddy only serves to magnify the mismatching of his character with a much younger French woman. The dialogue and the plot provide few interesting moments for him or his fellow actors. When the story is over, little has happened--certainly nothing of consequence.
