A dreary travelogue masquerading as romantic-comedy

You'd think Eleanor Coppola - wife of Francis and mother of Sofia - would have picked up a few tips about film-making over the years. Even just listening to Francis on the phone or asking Sofia how she's getting on with work. But, no, clearly not. Mama Coppola has no feel whatsoever for romantic-comedy, no clue about what makes a character interesting or believable, no concept of pace or tension, and apparently no interest in dialogue that is anything but banal. What she puts on the screen doesn't much resemble a movie at all, to be brutally honest. At best, Paris Can Wait comes across like a lavish, but not particularly compelling travelogue, fully funded by the French Tourist Bureau. At worst, it evokes some rather dull American housewife's Youtube vlog of her European vacation. You'd also think any movie starring Diane Lane can't be too bad. But Lane - normally watchable in just about anything - is so stretched by the thinness of the material here that her attempts to inject some degree of fun and tension into scenes quickly becomes tedious. It doesn't help that her character is infuriatingly passive and pliable for a supposedly successful businesswoman and the well-traveled wife of a film producer. She doesn't balk at being hijacked on her drive to Paris, or having her credit card snaffled for expensive meals and hotels, and she's astonishingly slow to question the motives of a man who takes liberties and takes advantage at every turn. All in all, Paris Can Wait is an insult to the menopausal women it is so clearly setting out to exploit. The two points are purely for the French cuisine along the way - all of it fully described and scrupulously photographed, as though each canard and poisson is another character in the film. And they might as well be.

Watchable..

The wife of a successful movie producer takes a car trip from the south of France to Paris with one of her husband's associates. Thanks to a good narrative, good perfomances and Diane Lane's excellent perfomance in the leading role 'Paris Can Wait' is an enjoyable and watchable film even tho it drags in certain areas and Alec Baldwin's part is forgettable. (6.5/10)

Such a boring way to remind us that life can still be interesting after reaching middle age

The wife (Diane Lane) of a successful movie producer (Alec Baldwin) takes a road trip from the south of France to Paris with one of her husband's associates (Arnaud Viard). They eat well, drink good wine, talk and... you know.

Wow, a movie lasting only 92 minutes. Whatever happened to most of the them clockin in at around two hours? Sadly, "Paris Can Wait" - original title "Bonjour Anne" - can be uninspired or boring enough to feel like last two hours. But it's a start. Here's to shorter movies!

Technically, it's so well made and put together that I should give it 10 out of 10. It looks every bit as delicious as in trailers.

There's only one small "but" lurking around... it's near-perfect only for a certain taste which I don't happen to share. And if one is not into that sort of thing, the result can feel so bland and soulless that it bites you in the ass.

It's a perfect movie for a little girl in all of us, regardless the age or gender, taking place in a world where life doesn't have any depth, everything is black and white, and/or.

It's also unapologetically consumerist - meaningful life equals mostly to fine wining and dining and travelling, creativity equals to taking photos while doing it. And it's OK to be a trophy wife if your husband doesn't just work all the time. I could go on and be more specific but I am afraid of boring all my three readers.

All this doesn't surprise much if you consider the background of the debuting writer-director Eleanor Coppola (white American, old, upper upper class - a wife of 54 years of Francis Ford Coppola, by the way).

Well, at least she was satisfied with a short movie of depthless and consumerist kind, unlike her colleagues such as Nancy Meyers or Diane Keaton.

The most interesting thing about "Paris Can Wait" is definitely that Coppola debuted as a feature movie writer and director at the mature age of 80 years (she's done documentaries before). And she's not even record-shattering! The distinction belongs to Japanese Takeo Kimura, who was close to 90.

So... if you liked the trailer, you should maybe try it out for 10 minutes or so. If you can stomach the style and approach, you will probably enjoy the result.

If not, quit while you're ahead. It does feel like a longer movie if you stick around. Recent and in a way similar "Home Again" starring Reese Witherspoon is more fun.

Still, it's good to see Diane Lane still doing movies, and she's wonderful here too. (Viard is enjoyable too.) Only... getting offered mostly this kind of "miss nice guy" roles are exactly why she contemplated quitting acting before. Funny.
