"a good excuse for the cast to enjoy a couple of months in Provence"
Oh, dear. That's not the sort of comment you want to hear about your movie, is it? But this is exactly what Variety reviewer Todd McCarthy has said about A Good Year, the romantic comedy based on Peter Mayle's novel of the same name. The film has just been released at the Toronto International Film Festival, and the reviews do not appear to be bubbling with excitement. Seems that Russell Crowe's attempt at humor is a little strained. Well at least its not corked! And we (the audience) will get to spend a few hours in Provence. Perhaps some wine and cheese might help to pass the time?
