      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      French Kiss is effervescent like good champagne but its spirit fizzles in a film that isn't as intoxicating as its stars.

      Jonathan Rosenbaum Chicago Reader French Kiss jettisons every vestige of the Lubitsch and post-Lubitsch Wilder tradition in conveying France to an American audience... Rated: 1/4 Jun 7, 2022 Full Review Lisa Schwarzbaum Entertainment Weekly Rated: C Sep 7, 2011 Full Review Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle Rated: 3/4 Jun 18, 2002 Full Review Jas Keimig The Stranger (Seattle, WA) French Kiss is perfect escapist content for this moment, when the world feels like it's on fire. Feb 1, 2022 Full Review Alberto Abuín Espinof It is a huge disappointment to see Kevin Kline shine, as always, with a character of enormous possibilities but that ends up being sold to the demand of the mass. [Full Review in Spanish] Aug 30, 2019 Full Review David Nusair Reel Film Reviews Filmmaker Lawrence Kasdan, working from a script by Adam Brooks, has infused French Kiss with an appropriately lighthearted and bubbly feel that's reflected most keenly in the engaging, charming performances from its stars...

      Debra Z This is a lovely feel good romantic comedy with Meg Ryan & Kevin Kline & their best. There are many quotable lines & I feel it is underrated …always a joyful watch! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 05/27/23 Full Review Steve D The script is not as smart as it thinks it is. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review S S One of Meg Ryan and Kevin Kline's best movies it's true gem Hollywood never notices amazing films like this they have their heads up their ass Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/24/22 Full Review constanze r I'm not saying it's good, but it checks every box to be the perfect comfort movie. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review christina c My favourite romantic comedy. I love that the two main characters spend a lot of time together, which is key for this genre, but so often ignored by movie makers. I still laugh myself silly in the dessert cart/restaurant scene. Never gets old. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Sometimes you just want a sweet romance with a bit of humor, if you do, this is a good one.
