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 sits down next to Jean-Paul in Cannes, her left sleeve is scrunched up when she sits down, but between shots of Luc walking away and it cutting back to her, it is pulled down. See more »
[describing her first sexual encounter]
I didn't rush, you were right. But I didn't hide from it, either. I wanted everything to be perfect. I was 18. Jeff the Jock, my basement, Valentine's Day, "Jeopardy!" on in the background. It's a game show on TV.
Oui, "Le Jeopardie". We have it.
Jeff said it would last longer with the show on to distract him. Got all the answers wrong except for sports. By Double Jeopardy!, he was done; by Final Jeopardy!, he was on his way home.

Near the beginning of the credits, we hear the voices of Kate and Luc. They talk, and then he sings the song "La Mer." See more »
Funny, romantic, clever. One of the best of it's kind.
A fantastic romantic comedy that will truly satisfy fans of this sub-genre. I really liked the movie because I expected a light comedy with a solid, clever plot and charismatic performance. To date this may be my favorite romantic comedy.
I've seen it many times and all I can say is that I can recommend it for those who enjoy funny, witty, and entertaining romantic comedies.
Also, if you are a fan of Meg Ryan you might enjoy this movie a lot. Jean Renó steals the show with his excellent performance.
A movie that shouldn't be missed for those who watch occasionally a romantic comedy.
Among the best romantic comedies of the 90's; if not the best.
