DVD Review: Paris Manhattan
Paris Manhattan is a delightfully fluffy rom-com about a Parisian called Alice who has been obsessed with Woody Allen since her early years. Obsessed might not quite cover it however, as she literally has conversations with a larger than life-size poster of Allen. After having her perfect man stolen off her by her sister, who then went on to marry him, Alice’s parents, sister and brother-in-law set about to try and find her a man to marry.
Alice however thinks she is better off alone, and when her father hands over the reigns to their family run pharmacy, she starts handing out a different kind of medicine to her customers, a selection of Woody Allen DVDs to help cure them of what ever malaise they may be suffering.
In typical rom-com fashion, brother-in-law finds Alice a hot hunk of a man, and in due course she also meets a more suitable man for her, but can’t see any future with him as her hot hunk is servicing her just fine.
Predictable as it is, Paris Manhattan does have it’s own brand of originality and is quirky to boot. A light and fluffy way to spend a raining night in front of the fire.
Rating: PG: Coarse language.
