This is one of my real favourite films of Jean's.
Jean plays a policeman, Jean-Paul, in this film. Kevin Kline is a theif, Luc, who has been to Canada to steal a very expensive
diamond necklace. On the plane back to France, he meets up with Meg Ryan. She is a Canadian girl who has always been very
afraid of flying all of her life. But, her Canadian fiancé goes off on a business trip, and then meets up with a French girl
,and falls in love with her, so Meg plucks up all of her courage to go and find him.
Meg, doesn't want, Kevin, to sit next to her on the plane, he is loud, he is French, and he smells of cigarettes. But
he's sat next to her anyway, and they engage in a conversation, it's mostly Kevin though, who is taking the piss out of Meg,
and what he thinks her love life is like. He manages to get her into the air with his arrogant manner by making her very angry,
so she doesn't realise that they have taken off.
Once in France, Meg goes hunting for her unfaithful fiancée, she sees him in a hotel with his newly found love, and faints.
Her hand luggage has already been stolen by a theif. Luc pretends to be her friend and wants to help find the thief and her
luggage, but little does she know that he had hidden the necklace in her bag, because he knew he would be stopped at cutoms
by the French Police.
Jean, isn't in this very much, but he is a true gentleman as a policeman. There is some really good funny bits, some pretty
bits and a really nice story through and through, a true girly film. Although, I must say, I do cringe at Meg's performance
at being angry in Bob's flat when she realises he's gotten rid of her Vitamins. Her acting certainly leaves a lot to be desired.
