As flippant vaudeville-style comedies go, Cote d'Azur is rather weak.

The gay-themed film's characters and complications are formula fluff.

You might call it a musical without songs (mostly), or a farce without enough doors to slam, or a comedy without enough jokes.

While Cote d'Azur should be a vacation, it's often more like work just trying to stay engaged.

It's a diversion at best and a strained souffle at worst, but it rings enough Gallic changes on the old family-summer- gone-horribly- wrong genre to deliver some unexpectedly sharp laughs.

There's no denying the appeal of well-toned half-naked bodies, a sun soaked Mediterranean beach, and -- musical numbers extolling the aphrodisiac qualities of shellfish?

Sunny little nothing of a French comedy.

Like many a French summer holiday, Côte d'Azur ends up being pretty, listless, and much too long.

Watching the featherweight French farce Côte d'Azur provides the oxymoronic sensation of looking at a pornographic movie with no real sex.

Cote D'Azur is an attempt at a witty, life-affirming sex farce, but it has no truth, wisdom or honesty, and it's barely entertaining.

It's all lots of fun while it lasts, but you'll likely forget about it as soon as the credits roll.

This breezy French sex farce offers an alternative to Viagra -- a Mediterranean seaside village that's so sun-dappled and alluring that anyone who vacations there quickly succumbs to pansexual languor.

It's hard to make a dull movie with copious nudity and all kinds of sex (straight, bi and gay), although French filmmakers Olivier Ducastel and Jacques Martineau manage to do so.

This is a sophisticated adult treat in the French manner with an attractive and gifted cast and is essentially serious, yet often whimsical and always compassionate.

What's nice about Cote d'Azur -- besides the musical numbers that are completely insane -- is that something or someone is always jumping out of the bushes, and the film has such a patient understanding of who and what that might be.

As (yet another) homage to the fabled elasticity of French carnal mores, it's tiresomely coy.

It's clear that for the filmmakers, this is a sexy fantasy worth trying at home. And they make the prospect appear alluringly doable.
