A nice setting on the Cote d'Azur, a delicious Audrey Tautou, a shy but sufficiently intriguing Gad Elmaleh and a good chemistry between them would be enough to make a comedy entertaining.

Elmaleh and Tautou clash in a fascinating "let's see who's the better player" game where all bets are off.

So when it comes to the predictable finale, I have no further complain about it.

Audrey Tatou is stunning, giving a complex performance as the sexy, conniving, vulnerable and ready to love Irène.

But it could have been worse too, after a promising start; the movie takes an unexpected turn into what is probably one of the most upsetting displays of dependent relationship between a man and the woman he's in love in.

I found the film to be a very snobby and predictable.

Movie about boring, shallow, selfish people.

It is hugely enjoyable and utterly charming.

His night has been very slow and when Irène (Audrey Tautou) comes to the bar, she mistakes him for one of the hotel's rich patrons.

A year passes and the two meet again under similar circumstances and as the true identities are unveiled Irène teaches Jean how to be a gigolo, only to have the tables turn in a predictable way.

The film is cluttered with clichés, some quite well repolished, but it is nevertheless enjoyable.

But since this is a story of luxurious sexual traffic, this is cross-bread with a realistic grittiness, mostly coming from the secondary characters and accurately so, welcome all the more because it is somewhat unexpected.

Audrey Tautou manages to show her glamor gracefully in spite of her role's repugnant character, her acting is convincing and watchable, at the same time Gad Elmaleh's also proves his charm with a slower pace.

An absolute delight from bouncy credits to a predictable although satisfying finish.

Bored and frustrated, Irène spills out into the complex only to bump into Jean – someone who becomes smitten with her when they bond and sleep together.

Tautou is great as always, showing off her stunning figure whenever possible, as well as her impeccable comic timing and wealth of facial expressions.

Enjoyable And Charming .

I too caught up in the confusion to follow what should be the intended following of the movie.

Entertaining and romantic, yes.

The combine cheating and greedy nature between these two people is nearly unbearable.

Tautou and Elmaleh find a wonderful chemistry in this laugh-out-loud comedy, and Salvadori's suspenseful narrative is the perfect vehicle for these two talented actors to play off against one another.

Playful and entertaining French romance .

Set amidst the opulent architecture and stunning ocean views of the world renowned Biarritz holiday coast, Priceless is decorated with exquisite fashion, beautiful people, and a sense of nonchalance that one often associates with people who spend the best part of their time "writing cheques".

The memorable scenes of her includes her boredom in bed, the surprise of seeing Jean in the restaurant and many more.

Well worth the watch.

Jean plods along in life, serving the rich and empty; hobbling along in his job, suffering the wrath of his supervisor should he doze off during his night-shift in this, his bartender-come-security guard-come-anything else role.

This is not a masterpiece, but it is a very clever, witty and enjoyable film with an excellent cast.

However, the film is mostly dialogue and does seem slow moving, at times, so if you are an action-lover, your patience might be tried.

Pointless.

its really a very entertaining movie.

Probably the worst movie I've ever watched .

With a predictable overall arc, the film still manages to entertain through the sheer fun of what these people go through.

thoroughly enjoyable - the audience was tittering along with me .

Last night my girlfriend dragged me to a chick flick.

Inspired by director Blake Edwards 1961's film, 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' & director, William Wyler 1953's 'Roman Holiday', 'Priceless' is a 2006 French film directed by Pierre Salvadori that I found, nearly unwatchable.

And it all turns out to be a very pleasant & entertaining romantic comedy that's sure to treat fans of the genre well.

There are two drivers in today's shallow world: sex and money; and women and men use the premise of one to have both, and this leads to a vicious circle that maintains the sensation of boring redundancy inhabiting this world.
