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

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.
October 29, 2005
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.
October 21, 2005
As flippant vaudeville-style comedies go, Cote d'Azur is rather weak.

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.
October 7, 2005
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.

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?
September 18, 2005
Olivier Ducastel and Jacques Martineau's "Cote'D'Azur" simply doesn't cut it, not even as a pleasant diversion.
September 15, 2005
Sunny little nothing of a French comedy.
September 13, 2005
Like many a French summer holiday, Côte d'Azur ends up being pretty, listless, and much too long.
September 9, 2005
Watching the featherweight French farce Côte d'Azur provides the oxymoronic sensation of looking at a pornographic movie with no real sex.
September 9, 2005
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.
September 9, 2005
In Ducastel's and Martineau's hands all the unpleasantness blows away like a kiss on a soft summer breeze, a light wind that nevertheless leaves a vaguely unpleasant scent in its wake.
September 9, 2005
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.
September 9, 2005
It all adds up to a fairly watchable movie, albeit one of the been-there, done-that school.
