This is a Kevin Kline you don't see often!
A chick flick? Maybe, but it can also be a date-night movie, too. I doubt you've ever see Kevin Kline quite like this before or since. This slightly greasy, smokey, Frenchman--and he will fool you into thinking he really is a Frenchman--will make you laugh and eventually warm your heart. As for Meg Ryan . . . she is charming and funny as she plays this quirky, slightly neurotic young woman. Some coming of age movies can be tedious, but as these two unlikely characters grow into themselves and therefore into one another, you will find yourself rooting for them while being thoroughly entertained in the process. The musical score for the movie is superb, and you'll be calling your travel agent after viewing the outstanding cinematography of the French countryside and coast .
