...an act of cinematic masturbation against pastel colors...

Works well so long as it is approached as a tongue-in-cheek farce as opposed to a plausible melodrama.

Delights and surprises, a combo that is important to many audiences.

Valerie Bruni-Tedeschi (who looks like a Gallic Gillian Anderson) is superb here, giving a weirdly sexy, frequently distracted performance that works well.

a funny, sexy, and very French diversion that's as weightless as a Mediterranean breeze.

If anything, the film is proof that a European sex comedy can be just as boring as your run-of-the-mill comedy if the writing isn't up to snuff.

Little more than an alluring travelogue with a side order of R-rated humpiness.

Abrupt cuts and reversals, repetition of jokes, and limp dialogue conspire against anyone's caring about the characters or their movie.

Bollywood musical revelry mixes with vaudeville's grand tradition of slamming doors to accent the comedy and emotional chaos.

Co-filmmakers Olivier Ducastel and Jacques Martineau are getting in the habit of offering imperfect but highly enjoyable concoctions in human quirkiness, this one strictly sudsy, and cute as a polka-dot bikini.

As flippant vaudeville-style comedies go, Cote d'Azur is rather weak.
October 21, 2005
The film has the potential to be decadent (infidelity is here regarded as the norm and monogamy as an aberration), but Ducastel and Martineau somehow turn it into lighter-than-air fluff.
October 13, 2005
A zippy, modern variation on those Shakespeare comedies where a bunch of pretty young people head off into the woods to pair off with each other.

When they aren't talking about sex, they're having it... You can't live on sex and seafood alone - a little variety is needed to spice up your diet... and this movie.
