Paris When It Sizzles is an unusual screwball comedy to say the least. Whether it works is another matter, but the premise and humor are interesting enough to make it enjoyable. The basic problem with the film is its two stars: William Holden and Audrey Hepburn hardly sizzle with onscreen chemistry, and Hepburn's character, Miss Simpson, falls far too easily into the hands of Holden's drunken screen writer. However, the story is an interesting play on the typical Hollywood romance, with two plotlines running in parallel to each other. Holden's Richard Benson has only two days to finish a script for an enigmatic producer (Noel Coward). Hepburn's Miss Simpson is drafted in as the typist and as the script is dictated it manifests itself on the screen, allowing the two lead characters to play out any number of romantic stories. It's the cameo appearances in the imaginary world that really steal the show, with the blink-and-you'll-miss-it last screen appearance by Marlene Dietrich, as well as Tony Curtis having fun with his own screen persona. Not one of Hepburn or Holden's best, but worth a look purely for the interesting slant on the mechanical nature of Hollywood's romances. --Nikki Disney

Okay, to appreciate this film you have to have the right mind-set going in. It's not a 'classic' Hepburn movie a la 'Roman Holiday', or 'Sabrina', or 'My Fair Lady', although it IS better than 'Green Mansions'!
The plot is unimportant, and some of the scenes are just ridiculous; but, that is what makes them fun. The whole movie for me is when they are all in a tiny euro-car driving through Paris, and Audrey Hepburn's 'princess hat' is sticking out of the sun-roof; funny!
I wouldn't spend too much on this one, but it is still a funny, sweet comedy with some great little moments.

Corny dialogue, over-the-top romantic scenes, mediocre acting, William Holden - this movie embodies everything that could go wrong in a 50's movie. The only thing that saves this movie from total destruction is Audrey Hepburn, who is lovely as usual.

Two great actors, but a weak script. Not the calibre we generally enjoy with vintage Hepburn.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cute fun in Paris...although Oct. 5 2008
Format:DVD
Well I purchased this movie from Amazon a week or so ago, and I decided to sit myself down and watch it last night. I read all of it's reviews a while a go, and they weren't so hot. I went into it with an open mind, and I found it was pretty good.

The scenery is beautiful, and the actors did an amazing job- but since it was a movie in a movie, some parts were a little hard to follow. I couldn't say I laughed out loud for a lot of the parts, but nevertheless some parts will make you chuckle. I rated this movie four stars, hence I don't regret buying it. To be quite honest it's one of my favorite Audrey films! It's so romantic and I cried at the end!

Never mind some bad reviews, this is a musthave for any devote Audrey fan!

HAD I READ ALL REVIEWS, I WOULD HAVE FOUND OUT THE TRUTH ABOUT THIS FILM. THE 5-STARS REVIEWS ARE SIMPLY NONSENSE, THEY DON'T GIVE YOU AN ACCURATE FEELING FOR THE MOVIE. THE 1-STARS - NOW THOSE REALLY KNOW WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT! THEY KNOW A STINKER WHEN THEY SEE ONE AND ARE NOT AFRAID TO SAY SO.
I AM SELLING ONE OF THESE "PARIS... USED FILMS AND I HAVE TO BE HONEST, I HAVE TO SAY THE TRUTH - SO BE FOREWARNED! THIS FILM IS BAD, IT IS NOT ENTERTAINING AND THERE IS NO PLOT OR CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT OR ANYTHING REDEEMING ABOUT THIS FILM.
THE DESCRIPTION OF THE MOVIE OUTSIDE OF IT'S BOX IS REALLY A WARNING. IT TELLS YOU HOW THE MOVIE HAVE SUCH BEAUTIFUL SCENERY OF PARIS. WELL- THAT'S A WAY TO TELL YOU THAT THIS IS ALL THIS MOVIE HAS IN IT THAT COULD BE OF POSSIBLE INTEREST. GOOD LUCK!
IF YOU BUY THIS FILM, DON'T SAY I DIDN'T WARN YOU.

5.0 out of 5 stars This One's A Sizzler! July 29 2003
Format:DVD
'Paris When It Sizzles' is a funny, light-hearted masterpiece that is made even better by the two brilliant stars, Audrey Hepburn and William Holden.
Holden plays a famous writer who hires Hepburn to be his typist. But she is not too pleased when he reveals to her that he has not written anything yet, or even thought about the story line! So with only two days to get the script finished, the couple set about coming up with a plot, adding romance, twists, humour, switches, switches on switches, and switches on switches on switches!
The script is then brought to life by the imagination of Holden and Hepburn. With Holden playing the main man, and Hepburn playing the main girl. And also other roles played by Tony Curtis, and a cameo from Audrey's husband at the time Mel Ferrer.
This is an enjoyable film that won't leave you asking any questions. It is one Hepburn and Holden's best. Definitely not one to miss.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not even Audrey can salvage this one.... July 27 2003
Format:DVD
I agree with the viewers from Texas -- this was AWFUL! I couldn't wait for it to end. And until seeing this, I didn't think Audrey had made any truly bad movies. It's completely silly and pointless, and the vampire scene alone made me wonder if the writers and producers were on drugs when they made this.
