Consensus: It's froth, but stylish and giddily entertaining.

No more than a shallow, style-mad entertainment, but it never flags or loses its balance, and, despite the theatricality of the staging and the acting, it's precisely the materiality of the cinema ... that makes us devour it with pleasure.

If you like to read subtitles or comprehend French and the beautiful people who speak it, Bon Voyage is a perfectly delightful time-killer at the movies.

Not only does the plot have the required twists and the action keep us at the edge of our seats, but the story is populated with interesting and believable characters.

Despite the film's undeniable virtues, I can't help wishing there were something more substantial there than an old-fashioned and admittedly engaging yarn.
