is happily in love with her fiance (Timothy Hutton) until she gets a call from him during his business trip to Paris that he has fallen in love with a gorgeous French “goddesse” ().  Despite her fear of flying, Ryan trudges her sorry ass all the way over to France, on the way meeting up with a crooked French con artist (Kevin Kline, doing a mostly believable accent) and finding herself unable to shake him off during her long quest to find her man and win him back.  Beautifully photographed, director Lawrence Kasdan’s widescreen direction takes ample advantage of the gorgeous French countryside while also doing justice to Adam Brooks’s hilarious screenplay.
