What You Need To Know:

LOST IN PARIS is a comedy about a delightfully awkward librarian, Fiona, who travels from Canada to Paris in search of her Aunt Martha. 88-year-old Martha is on the run from the nurses, who want to put her in a retirement home. Before long, both Fiona and Martha are totally lost, without any money or belongings. Fiona encounters Dom, an eccentric, egotistical homeless man who falls for her. Equally attracted and repulsed by Dom, Fiona reluctantly accepts his help to find Aunt Martha.

LOST IN PARIS has a fun artistic flair, with great comical moments. The story is about helping a family member in need. This gives the movie a light moral worldview. However, although there are references to two different couples in love, there’s no mention of marriage. LOST IN PARIS also has a few obscenities, brief lewd moments, a liberal use of alcohol, and a gratuitous image of a nude photo. Consequently, a movie that could be fun for families is seriously tainted by less than five minutes of objectionable content. MOVIEGUIDE® advises extreme caution for LOST IN PARIS.

More Detail:

Delightfully awkward Fiona becomes LOST IN PARIS as she searches for her 88-year-old Aunt Martha. Aunt Martha, who left Canada when Fiona was a child, is desperately trying to avoid the nurses coming to take her to a retirement home. She sends a letter to her niece Fiona, but in her confusion puts it in the trash. Nonetheless, Fiona receives the letter due to a kind anonymous onlooker who mails the letter.

A buttoned-down, prim-and-proper librarian, Fiona has always dreamed of going to Paris, but seems to lack general knowledge of international travel. Her bumbling French and overall naïveté lands her into all sorts of problems, including losing her belongings and a restaurant encounter with a rather eccentric and pompous homeless man named Dom. Both attracted and repulsed by this assertive fellow, Fiona tries to continue the search for her aunt while shooing off Dom. Fiona finally realizes she actually needs Dom’s help to continue the search. The slapstick comedy continues as Fiona and Dom race around Paris looking for Aunt Martha.

LOST IN PARIS has a fun artistic flair, with great comical moments. The story is about helping a family member in need. This gives the movie a light moral worldview. However, although there are references to two different couples in love, there’s no mention of marriage. Thus, the movie’s view of love is more emotional than biblical. LOST IN PARIS also has a few obscenities, a scene of implied fornication, a liberal use of alcohol, and a gratuitous shot of partially obscured frontal female nudity. Consequently, a movie that could be fun for families is seriously tainted by less than five minutes of objectionable content. MOVIEGUIDE® advises extreme caution for LOST IN PARIS.
