NOT: 2 Days in Paris, Prince Charles Cinema, 7 Leceister Place, Soho
I had been looking forward to this film but unfortunately it wasn't as funny or charming as I expected - instead it seemed to fall back on cliches about cross-cultural misunderstandings and French and American stereotypes for most of its storyline. Plus I didn't think the lovers had enough chemistry to be convincing. A nice DVD at home with takeaway movie, but certaintly not a must see. Just a note too about the Prince Charles Cinema - I love the fact that the movies are cheap, but the upward sloping screen made me feel a little bit seasick like I was in a cruise ship cinema.
