The Top 9 Movie Quotes About the French

french kissOur blog production has suffered since we began our tour of France a couple of weeks ago.  It will continue to suffer for the next few weeks.  We recognize that the French have not been well represented in film.  They are stereotyped as rude and inconsiderate, yet we have experienced generally friendly people.  They are typecast as heavy smokers, wine drinkers, over-the-top romantics, and a nation of butter-eating fine diners.  Well, okay, there’s that.  However, in honor of the many great French people we have met so far, here are our favorite nine film quotes about the French.
