Consensus: This listless, albeit sexually charged, French farce is too lightweight to make any impact despite its whimsical qualities.

As flippant vaudeville-style comedies go, Cote d'Azur is rather weak.

While Cote d'Azur should be a vacation, it's often more like work just trying to stay engaged.

Delights and surprises, a combo that is important to many audiences.
