Brief Synopsis – When a women visits her sister in Paris, she quickly learns that American and French customs about everything in life are so very different.
Bottom Line – Fun movie that just isn’t powerful enough. The cast is great with Naomi Watts and Kate Hudson keeping things fun to watch even if the story itself has much to be desired. Glenn Close stands out as an older American woman living in France who gives so much advice on how to live life to the fullest due to the way that customs work in France. Sam Waterston and Stockard Channel are fun to watch as the parents of Watts and Hudson. Unfortunately, despite such a fun cast, the story doesn’t flow so well and drags along at certain points.
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – This movie was originally set to star Winona Ryder and Natalie Portman, but both had to bow out before filming began. They appeared in Black Swan (2010) together. (From IMDB)
Rating – BAFTA Worthy (5/10)
