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

Star Kevin Kline once commented that friend and regular collaborator Lawrence Kasdan took on yet another genre with this movie - the screwball romantic comedy. Kasdan had previously directed such movies in such various genres as the suspense-thriller in Body Heat (1981), the ensemble comedy-drama The Big Chill (1983), the melodrama The Accidental Tourist (1988), the black comedy I Love You to Death (1990), and the westerns Silverado (1985) and Wyatt Earp (1994). Kasdan though had previously written the romantic comedy Continental Divide (1981) but was not that movie's director. See more »

Hey, I loved it!
10 April 2001 | by artzauSee all my reviews

What's wrong with Kevin Kline's accent? My mother's family are from France and they talk like that...sort of. Well, who cares? This is a fun, fun film and I enjoyed it from title to credits. Meg Ryan in her low key but hyper way (now, if that seems like an oxymoron, watch her performance) is wonderful. BTW, I've set next to her character on an International flight... The story is great. Kline's character is lots of fun and Meg Ryan just melts you. Jean Reno is wonderful as the cop who helps Kline redeem his soul. Also, good work by Timothy Hutton and others. This is a fun film and I'm at a loss as to why the critics slammed Kevin Kline's accent... I found it believable because there are many French accents, depending on the region of origin and Kline is a good-- non, très, très bon acteur.
