As a fan of Alec Baldwin and southern France, I was sadly disappointed in this bland and go-nowhere road trip movie. If you're looking for a movie with delightful characters and beautiful France as the backdrop, time is far better spent watching A Good Year or The Well Digger's Daughter. Both ava... Read More »

Seriously, Twelve Euros for a bottle of water. And look, they charged you for a hamburger and a cheese sandwich.
-Well, I wanted a cheeseburger, but I couldn't order one... So, I got both and I made my own. Honey, what are you working so hard for if your wife can't have a cheeseburger when she wants one?
Anne, a deal offer is like a souffle. It's all about timing.
-Yes, you don't want it to collapse.
Cezanne's paintings here in this light.
-Yeah. The ones that I know at the MET in New York, they look a little sad. You know, as if they don't really want to be there.
See those old stone walls and that castle? The Romans were all through this area. Did you know that this region is called Provence because it was a province of Rome?
It's part of an aqueduct built when the Romans were at the height of their power, just to impress their subjects.
Does everything remind you of eating?
I'm not French.
-Yes, that is correct.
You're beautiful. You're an interesting woman.
-Oh, come on. I saw all the men in Cannes drooling over those young girls.
Come on. They're just pop-tarts. You, you're chocolate creme brulee. Yes, that's you. Brulee.
Why do flowers smell so much better in France than they do in the us?
-Why? Because we're in France. In America they look lovely but they smell like a refrigerator.
Not all things are meant to be. Yes, well, love isn't always fair.
This cheese is made from unpasteurized milk. It's alive and very healthy. Your cheese in America is pasteurized. It's dead. It goes into your stomach like a ball of fat.
-Is that why you French people can eat all the butter and cheese you want and never gain weight?
Yes, and we drink more red wine. Of course, we are more romantic.
Just eat what you feel like.
-You know, unlike smoking, there are studies that say that chocolate is good for you.
You Americans always have to have a reason for everything. We eat what we enjoy.
Are you happy?
-Oh... We have a good marriage...
No, that's not what I asked you.
We French, we have a different attitude about marriage than you Americans.
-Oh, and what is that?
We are practical. We're loyal to family and to marriage... But we are human, and we follow our natural human passions.
-Well, we must seem boringly puritanical to you.
And guilty. Guilt is bad for your digestion.
Paris can wait. We can't leave without taking a look at the pyramid, as they call it here.
I spy something with four legs.
-I spy something with two lovely legs.
--When I see the first new moon,
faint in the twilight...
I think of the moth eyebrows
of a girl I saw only once.
The changing of
the moon reminds me that
life and business have cycles.
and sometimes not.
---Hmm. You seem to live as if it's always full.
I remember going into the garden with my mother and picking tomatoes... Really ripe, red ones in August. Bringing them into the kitchen, still warm from the sun. She'd put slices on fresh bread, add good olive oil, sea salt and fresh ground pepper and say, "Jacques, you'll never eat better."
I grew up in Cleveland.
No, our idea of fine dining was fried chicken, mashed potatoes, and frozen peas. I didn't learn about good food until I went to California.
Listen, Anne. Jacques can be very charming, and Frenchmen have no scruples when it comes to married women.
