Owen Wilson, Marion Cotillard, Rachel McAdams, Kathy Bates, and Carla Bruni star in Woody Allen's romantic comedy about a family on a business trip in the City of Light. As a young couple engaged to be married experiences a profound transformation during their visit to Paris, an idealistic man with a romanticized view of the city finds that there's plenty of truth to that old adage about the grass being greener on the other side. Michael Sheen, Mimi Kennedy, and Kurt Fuller co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
This was a great story and wonderfully done. Sometimes Allen's movies are too slow or quirky for me, but this one was intriguing. The acting was great. The only critique is that I never understood how they were even engaged.
If you're a die hard Woody Allen fan or a Francophile then you'll enjoy this film, his first real hit in years. Owen Wilson makes the best Allen muse in ages outdoing Jason Biggs or Will Ferrell. Am looking forward to Allen's next movie set in Rome.
