Paolo (Vincenzo Amato), an Italian who drives a Paris tour bus, has just proposed to his true love, the German stewardess, Greta (Nora Tschirner), when the young French beauty, Cécile (Louise Monot) pulls up beside his bus on her bicycle - and, in short order, Paolo, following some very bad advice from his friend, Derek (Paddy Considine), finds himself with a German fiancée, a French "wife", two Australian children who call him "Papa", and his life upside-down.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Stupidity is an international condition. How reassuring."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"What wants to be a screwball comedy is run over by preposterous character motivation and a clunky plot."
‑ Jordan Hoffman, New York Daily News
"[The] we-are-the-world inclusiveness comes across like shameless pandering-a blatant effort to secure as much global financing as possible."
‑ Mike D'Angelo, The Dissolve
"The story and the circumstances are goofy enough to have been taken from an episode of "Three's Company.""
‑ Anders Wright, San Diego Union-Tribune
"More of a foolish plod than a weightless rollick."
‑ Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times
"More dippy than romantic or funny."
‑ Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic
"From the opening scene, Girl on a Bicycle falls into an unfortunate trap it can never quite escape from: its humor feels entirely forced and predominantly based on national stereotypes."
‑ Amir Soltani, Movie Mezzanine
"Pretty actors and pretty Paris locations don't rescue this limp collection of weary Euro-nationalist stereotypes and the lame situations the story puts them in"
‑ Roger Moore, McClatchy-Tribune News Service
"It's all light as a feather, with Jeremy Leven, the writer and director, landing some good multinational jokes along the way."
‑ Neil Genzlinger, New York Times
"Girl on a Bicycle is like Micki + Maude minus the outrage, complexity, or crack timing."
‑ Sam Weisberg, Village Voice
"It may be the worst romantic comedy I have ever seen, and this is not hyperbole."
‑ Odie Henderson,
"The film turns the miscommunication between cultures into an utterly lifeless romantic comedy best appreciated as a travel guide for first-time tourists to Paris."
‑ Wes Greene, Slant Magazine
