Consensus: Paris Can Wait's likable stars are ill-served by a film that lacks interesting ideas or characters and has little to offer beyond striking travelogue visuals.

It has its moments, but mostly it feels like being stuck in the backseat on a long car ride.

An acceptable but ultimately forgettable romantic trip across France. It's the sort of movie that your mother would gush about.
