The film is light entertainment. Anne, played by Diane Lane, has ear infections so can't fly to Paris to meet her busy, director spouse, Michael, played by Alex Baldwin. Jacques, Michael's business associate, played by Arnaud Viard, offers to drive her to Paris. Paris can wait, because Jacques wants to show Anne some lovely parts of France, including some delectable foods and wines. It felt like being on holiday from everyday life. It brought back lovely memories of France and Paris, which added to the enjoyment of the film.

My friends all enjoyed Paris Can Wait, even as they felt it could have been better. Kalpna thought it was pleasant. Maureen thought it had all the elements of a better film. Everyone else agreed with these critiques. If you think you might like a meander through France, to Paris, enjoying the sights along the way, including the French food, this movie is for you. A little sexual tension to add to the pleasure, and no boring sex to hold up the action. In the end we were left with that same question, "Will she, won't she?"
