It. Was. Magical. We both loved it. While I was worried about Owen Wilson being too goofy for the main character, he was fantastic in the role. And with other cast members like Rachel McAdams, Carla Bruni (the French first lady!), Marion Cotillard, Kathy Bates, and Adrien Brody...it was amazing. Never since Mean Girls have I disliked a Rachel McAdams character so much. She's vile.
I don't want to ruin the movie for you, so I'll keep this brief. Owen Wilson is a writer, in Paris with his fiancee and her parents. He's a dreamer, who fantasizes about another time. And as he strolls Paris he discovers magic. The film is already on our list of movies to buy soon.
Oh, and bonus for my readers who watch a lot of French films...the actor who played the lead opposite Audrey Tatou in Hors de Prix has a bit role as a detective in this film. No speaking, but an amusing part.
