  • Ryan's comic timing continues to delight, while Kline is touchingly heartfelt as a man doing what is evidently all too easy to do -- fall in love with Meg Ryan. show more

  • In French Kiss--a picture that isn't unusually funny or original but that has expert actors, smooth direction and ravishing French locales--we can get pleasure from the sheer, relaxed polish of it all, the effortless swing. It's a good time passer. [5 May 1995, p.C] show more

  • Kline's Frenchman is somehow not worldly enough, and Ryan's heroine never convinces us she ever loved her fiance in the first place. A movie about this kind of material either should be about people who feel true passion or should commit itself as a comedy. Compromise is pointless. show more

    One of my favorite movies of all time. Great scenery of Paris, Provence, and the Cote D'Azur. Great chemistry between Kevin Kline and Meg Ryan and terrific supporting roles by actors who went on to starring roles, including Francois Cluzet and Jean Reno.
