    It’s all light as a feather, with Jeremy Leven, the writer and director, landing some good multinational jokes along the way.

    With this “Girl” and her bicycle, the cute bits, rare laugh out loud moments, occasionally zippy lines and limply obvious farcical predicaments are never more than instantly forgettable.

    Writer and director Jeremy Leven’s film is meant to be a trifle, a status which it achieves, but it’s nothing more than that.

    Girl on a Bicycle is like Micki + Maude minus the outrage, complexity, or crack timing.

    A rom-com whose agreeable individual elements aren't enough to sell the witless contrivance around which they revolve.

    The film turns the miscommunication between cultures into an utterly lifeless romantic comedy best appreciated as a travel guide for first-time tourists to Paris.

    The word convoluted does no justice to just how poorly designed Girl on a Bicycle is. It is also stereotypical, unfunny, unromantic, absurd, sitcomish, insulting to several European ethnicities and a slave to what Roger Ebert used to call "The Idiot Plot Syndrome."

    Well written farcical humour verging on slapstick, meshed with some surprisingly brilliant acting portraying lovable characters topped offWell written farcical humour verging on slapstick, meshed with some surprisingly brilliant acting portraying lovable characters topped off with some exceptional cinematography and a gentle appropriate soundtrack.

    I give this a score of 10 for all the above but especially because it isn't pretentious it outs itself as a cliche from the get go and it is much more original and enjoyable because of this.

    Highly enjoyable.
