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.
October 21, 2005
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.
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.

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.
September 30, 2005
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.

Sexually brazen yet also rather sweet.
September 12, 2005
...the most perfect French farce, a whimsical semi-musical meringue of sexual surprises

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.
September 9, 2005
Now this is a French sex comedy.
September 9, 2005
Its joie de vivre and laissez faire attitude make this an unmistakably French twist on family values.
September 8, 2005
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.
September 8, 2005
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.
