Little more than an alluring travelogue with a side order of R-rated humpiness.
October 21, 2005
As flippant vaudeville-style comedies go, Cote d'Azur is rather weak.
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.
October 7, 2005
While Cote d'Azur should be a vacation, it's often more like work just trying to stay engaged.
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.
September 29, 2005
Sexually brazen yet also rather sweet.
September 28, 2005
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 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
It's all lots of fun while it lasts, but you'll likely forget about it as soon as the credits roll.
September 9, 2005
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
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 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.
September 8, 2005
As (yet another) homage to the fabled elasticity of French carnal mores, it's tiresomely coy.
September 8, 2005
It's the filmmakers' gentle, humanistic affection for their dysfunctional clan that allows the film to moderately rise above its somewhat rote tale of Riviera bed-hopping.
