  1. 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.
  2. 70
    A finely balanced piece of comedic machinery.
  3. You know this movie is French (apart from the subtitles), because everyone looks great, gets naked and later breaks into a peppy musical number about the joys of lobster and shellfish.
  4. 50
    In the end, all these sexual shenanigans just provide an excuse to play some seductive music and drink in some seaside scenery. Ah, Europe.
  5. 50
    As far as titles go, Cote d'Azur doesn't quite cut it for this topsy-turvy French comedy, in which an innocent seaside vacation gets really messy once a family full of busybodies starts poking around in one another's business.
  6. Unfortunately, the screenplay contains little real wit, with the result that the various plot machinations have a strained quality that tends to reduce the proceedings of their intended giddiness. On the other hand, the performers are attractive; there's plenty of nudity; the setting is scenic, and the musical numbers -- well, they're pretty bad.
  7. Has no truth, wisdom or honesty, and it's barely entertaining.

    I gave this 10 because I really did enjoy it. Guess I must have tuned into the soft and suble essence of the movie, the joyful ending. Glad I was able to, unlike most critics who panned it. Expand
