      Reviews 14% Audience Score 250+ Ratings For a brief weekend, Paris is a playground for a random collection of tourists from Great Britain.

Their experiences --- both amorous and otherwise --- are revealed in a series of vignettes, which include the young girl's new romance with a Frenchman, the elderly artist's search for the Mona Lisa and the Englishman's prolonged stay at a local pub.

      Clyde Gilmour Maclean's Magazine The script is crammed with almost every imaginable cliché about wicked, fascinating Paree, but the incomparable Alastair Sim is very funny as an English diplomat whose secret weapon is his vast capacity for vodka. Nov 14, 2019 Full Review Penelope Houston The Spectator Alastair Sim, face wildly contorted, strains for an elusive laugh and Claire Bloom looks rather unhappy.

      Audience Member I loved comparing Paris in 1953 to present day Parisian films. There were so many more trees. There were so few people. Margarite Rutherford buys a Mona Lisa copy. Sims outdrinks a Russian snd Bloom outsmarts an old frenchman. Its fun in that it is light and isn't light what Parisian romance is. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member Episodic British comedy with a good cast. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Oh dear. Alastair Sim was pretty good, but the rest of this film, about Brits in Paris wasn't. Every character is purely a cliched stereotype, the comedy is mostly just silly, the script atrocious. Interesting look at 1950s travel, Sim was funny getting the better of a Russian whilst binge-drinking, but otherwise not worth wasting ones time on. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Audience Member This is a hidden gem. A story that has been duplicated many times over, and is very fresh here. The old lady painting is so comical and Sim is his delighfully grumpy self and him getting a little drunk is a picture Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member A good parody of a collection of different Brits abroad employing more than a few stereotypes. Has quite a few big names hidden amongst the cast list. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
