Movie Reviews

So-so brief tour of Paris
ellafan | MI | 03/11/2005
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Very brief.Some good scenery.Not enough on historic buildings/architecture. And I actually found the female guide snotty and sometimes downright rude.I am surprised I feel that way,but she was pretty irritating.Kind of smug.If I was lucky enough to be visiting/describing Paris,I think I would be less irritating and much more delighted in what/who I was looking at.
I don't like hurting people's feelings,but I found myself actually talking back to the screen a few times in almost anger.
Could be just me,but different strokes and all.
I'm sure there must be a lot of Paris travel guides on DVD that are better than this one.I'll keep looking."
Too Short!

"This video is too short. It offers very little information before you make the trip, and it seems nothing after you come back from the trip.

Globe Trekker does a good job in general, but not this one."
Very disappointing DVD
Echecs | 10/17/2006
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Rather than a DVD about Paris, this seems to be a DVD about an American woman in her 40s who likes to be filmed in her pyjamas, or wrapped in a towel, or chatting up men saying how cute they are.

Virtually nothing here on the sites of one of Europe's best cities.

Don't waste your money."
Some interesting things
Paul Beauparlant | east coast USA | 05/16/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)

"An interesting ride within the train that travels beneath the English channel on its way to Paris begins this film. You can buy a round trip ticket for as low as $125.
Once in the city I found the visit to the Paris underground subway system "The Metro" to be very interesting.
Several things I found unnecessary included a kitchen food preparation excersize at the Cordon Bleu, a visit to Paris Disneyland, a show at the nightclub The Lido and a visit to a African community in Paris.....while skipping a tour of the hillside district Montmartre is not even mentioned?
The film ends with almost an afterthought as we get to go inside and up the steps of the Eiffel Tower. This was very nice as you can almost reach out and touch the structural beams and practically smell the paint, but again, it was not enough. A short tour of The Louvre was okay, not really enough though. I agree with some other reviewers wishing someone else rather than Justine Shapiro had been the guide for this travelogue. And the people she meets along the way I didn't really care for except for the cabdriver who I thought was interesting. So overall I give this a rating of 3 stars. I would think there MUST be better guides out there"
