Quite le drag.

August 29, 2003

This is an insignificant film with a passably entertaining premise that goes wildly to hell the instant it strays from its comic ideals with brief, unsatisfying detours into the realms of art and high-end lingerie.

August 22, 2003 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

It is a well-dressed film filled with thought and sly observations.

August 22, 2003 | Rating: B

It pokes along like a Renault on an interstate, lacking drama or momentum.

August 21, 2003 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

It's all perfectly pleasant, but the movie lacks an urgent dramatic pulse, or a clear sense of whose story it's supposed to be, or even, from scene to scene, whether it's meant to be a comedy, drama or thriller.

August 20, 2003 | Rating: C+

A delightful blend of American sensibility and French chaos in a movie that is sunny, surprising and consistently entertaining.
