PARIS CAN WAIT

Reviewed by GREG KING Director: Eleanor Coppola Stars: Diane Lane, Arnaud Viard, Alec Baldwin. It's one of those vagaries of film distribution that we sometimes get two films released at the same time with similar plots and ideas. Within the space of a couple of weeks we get two road trip movies featuring two people on a journey through some of the most picturesque areas of Europe, sampling the history, culture and food of the region as they travel. One is the hilarious The Trip To Spain, the third film in the series featuring Steve Coogan and Rob Bryden Continue reading
