    I just finished a delightful evening watching my life in ruins. a mind candy kind of movie, it was fun to see the evolution of the bored apathetic tour group turn into a more relaxed tongue in cheek kind of crowd. i didn't have to be embarrassed with nudity or foul language. It had a happy ending, more or less (I think Richard Dreyfuss dies), and the scenery whetted my own appetite to try the package tour trip. Thanks for a fun ride, I'll be back for more

    I loved this movie! Even with the predictable cast of tour participants, I thought the dialogue was cleverly written, the scenery was really beautiful (I have been to all these places and I they were portrayed just as they are), the chemistry between the lovers was believable, and it had a wonderful "feel good" ending. I have seen it more than once, and have enjoyed it every time! Anyone who doesn't like this movie must be hyper-critical, have no sense of humor, and has never been on a bus tour in Europe!
