      Audience Member Lightweight but enjoyable piece of fluff starring and directed by Gene Kelly. Kelly and Barbara Lanage play two single parents living in Europe who's children who have decided to runaway to Paris together. The set-up allows for lots of comic episode for the children and for their parents, along with the inevitable romantic ones, as they traipse across a picture postcard Europe. Not a classic, but worth watching for fans of Gene Kelly. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Plods along to no purpose. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member a road movie of sorts Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Pleasant-enough family fare with surprisingly topical commentary on giving another culture a chance.
