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
In the scene where Kate confronts Charlie on the beach, the sunlight begins on Charlie and Juliet's left sides, but as soon as she is offered a seat, the light switches so that it's coming from behind Kate and shining on their front/right sides. See more »
Did you know that there are four hundred and fifty-two official government cheeses in this country? Don't you think that's incredible? To come up with four hundred and fifty-two ways of classifying what is basically a bacterial process?
You would prefer one cheese? One cheeseburger to put it on and one restaurant to eat it in?
I'm saying I *like* the cheese. God!

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 »
A truly funny piece. It's the one we get out of our collection when we just want to sit down and watch something familiar, funny and just NICE.
Meg Ryan reveals herself as a true comedienne and Kevin Kline is the funniest Frenchman you ever loved to hate. So what if we know exactly what's going to happen? That's the way with romantic comedies, as it is with most 'genre' movies. Even after having seen it at least a dozen times, we still laugh when Ryan sneaks up on her absconded fiancee and his new girlfriend and in the process causes major havoc in a posh French cafe; or when Kevin Kline tells her how the uptight nature of the Americans makes his 'ass twitch'.
