Movies that truly have the capacity to delight - that amuse and lift the spirits and create a warm feeling - are rare. "Romantics Anonymous" is one of those rare delights.

Romantics Anonymous is a feel-good charmer, aided by little touches such as a retro soundtrack and slightly unexpected song and dance routines.

It'll be too light and frothy for some tastes, but it's bound to leave you with a warm glow.

Boy meets girl. Boy likes girl. Girl faints and boy jumps out the bathroom window.

Flighty, feather-light French romantic comedy...A very pleasant treat.

A mug of warm cocoa with marshmallow topping that produces a comfy feel-good glow.

Améris's recipe here calls for everything in moderation, resulting in a movie that never threatens to offend nor, particularly, to delight, though it does offer a good view on a modestly charming actors' duet.
