French Kiss

French Kiss

Lawrence Kasdan (1995)

15 Certificate


Our Score
Probably the most lightweight of Lawrence Kasdan's movies, this is bit of a disappointment if judged in comparison with his other films. However, if you manage to banish The Big Chill and The Accidental Tourist from your mind, you can still enjoy the amiably fluffy confection. Meg Ryan, in her trademark "ever-so-ditzy" mode, sets off for France to reclaim wandering fiancé Timothy Hutton, only to find herself stuck with slobby French thief Kevin Kline. The latter's role was reported to have been created for Gérard Depardieu, but Kline acquits himself well as the Gallic rogue, and the chemistry between him and Ryan is spot-on.


A neurotic woman learns that her fiance has met another woman in France and broken off the engagement. Determined to make him change his mind, she conquers her fear of flying and heads off to Paris - but along the way gets involved in a French jewel thief's latest criminal caper. Romantic comedy, starring Meg Ryan, Kevin Kline, Jean Reno and Timothy Hutton.
