Plot Summary

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 Kevin Kline had a professor to coach him with the French to speak it as a Frenchman. He studied French during his Jr. High/High school years and a year in college. He didn't learn to speak it until he went to Alliance Française in New York. See more »
Goofs When Kate first met Bob (the "Eurotrash in an Armani suit" thief) at the George V Hotel, he spoke perfect English. When she met him again at his apartment when Luc was helping her get her things back, it seemed as if he spoke no English. Luc was used as a translator during the entire scene. See more »

Crazy Credits 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 »
Quotes Luc: And I am thinking, you should not be flying anywhere.
Kate: I shouldn't?
Luc: No, in fact, I am sure of it. I am thinking, I want you.
Kate: You want me?
Luc: That's all. I want you.
