French KissDirector: Lawrence Kasdan, Meg Ryan, Kevin Kline, Timothy Hutton
An American woman discovers that Paris truly is the city of love -- though not in the manner she expected -- in this romantic comedy. Kate (Meg Ryan) is desperately afraid of flying, so when her fiancée Charlie (Timothy Hutton) flies to Paris on business, she must stay behind. Kate has been having second thoughts about her impending marriage, but that changes when Charlie calls her to say that the engagement is off -- he's met a beautiful French woman named Juliette (Susan Anbeh), and he's fallen in love. Determined to win Charlie back, Kate confronts her fears and hops on board the next flight to Paris, where she finds herself seated next to Luc Teyssier (Kevin Kline), a French thief who stashes some valuable jewelry in her baggage hoping to avoid capture. While Luc simply wants to get his jewels back, he pretends to be willing to help Kate find Charlie and win him back in order to keep her luggage out of harm's way, but to his surprise (as well as Kate's), the two become infatuated as they make their way through the City of Lights. Leading lady Meg Ryan also served as co-producer for this film.

This is one of the most oringinal films for a funny, romance. I love the actors and think they did a really good job together for their parts.Whta I like the most about these types of movies and this one most of all is that even when you meet true love or any type of love it ussually doesn't start as my prince charming to come and rescue me in reallity it maybe some thing funny such as a plant, and diamonds. I also enjoyed the seens in paris and geting a different out look on a far off country. The drivers way of driving and the foods and clothing. Especially the way of life with Lukes father and family.All in all I think this is the best movie and wanted to have a say in it if any body ever wanted to read the reveiws.
Great Kevin Kline performance as a French thief-wanting-to-be-a-vintner who falls head over heels in love with American-trying-to-be-Canadian, Meg Ryan, who is truly luminous throughout the movie. And he sings the French classic, La Mer, which Bobby Darin recorded as Somewhere Beyond the Sea.
This is one of my favorite romantic comedies. I think one of the reasons I like it so much is because these characters are all flawed. It makes them so much more human and identifiable. It also shows a chain-reaction in a very clever and funny way. Meg Ryan and Kevin Kline are wonderful in this film, but they also seem so unlikely to be a romantic pairing, at first. As a twist of fate, Kate (Ryan) becomes entangled with Luke (Kline) as she flies to Paris to get Charlie (Hutton), her fiance, back from the clutches of his new fiance. As time goes on you see both Kate and Luke transformed by getting to know more about each other and themselves. They come to realize maybe the thing they both thought they needed isn't what they need at all. Perhaps, it is something unexpected and right beside them? The scenery in this film is breathtaking and the music is wonderful. This really is a feel good movie.
I thought this was a wonderful movie, with a good story line (including a few small sub-plots) and a great cast, especially the scene-stealing French hotel concierge. I can watch and re-watch this film over and over again. It is one of my favorite films.
If you want to be lost in total romance and laugh like you have never laughed before, get this movie! The scene with Meg and Luc on the train after she eats the cheese is unforgettably funny, and the scene with Meg and Luc dancing in the hotel room in the south of France is only for the hardcore complete and hopeless romantic! I loved this movie and can watch it again and again and always find something special and sweet about it. And the biggest bonus is the gorgeous location: the French countryside.
This well-written, cute movie is total enjoyment. Kline shines as Luc - a gorgeous, loveable rogue. Meg is adorable. Together they sparkle.
This movie is one of the greatest romantic comedies ever made. I love watching it and hail it as one of my favorite movies of all time. Kevin Kline is fantastic as Luc, the French criminal with a good heart. Meg Ryan shines as Kate, the ex-American/soon-to-be-Canadian who is lost in France as she searches for her lost love. The chemistry is wonderful and so is this movie. I recommend it to all.
This is a fabulous movie. Meg Ryan is not only stunning and captivating as usual - but a perfect match for Kevin Kline's character - a soft-hearted, clever and at times sexxxy criminal. If you haven't seen this movie yet, don't bother renting it - BUY IT because you will want to watch it over and over. The soundtrack is excellent and the scenes from France breathtaking!
A GREAT little movie!
I love romantic comedies and French Kiss is a cute movie and worth watching and probably worth even having in your romance movie collecton if you like to collect romance movies and you can get the DVD at a really cheap price. My only complaint is that alot of the times the characters in the movie aren't all that likeable, like sometimes Meg Ryan's character can be too pushy and neurotic and even though Kevin Kline looks incredibly sexy in this movie his character can be a little sleazy but there are some scenes in the movie that are good and the music is great! 3 1/2 stars!
