Audrey Tautou (Amelie) is stunning and seductive with her sparkling brown eyes and well-dressed petite figure. She draws you in like she does her wealthy stooges and leaves you with your mouth hanging open like a starving wolf eyeing a lonesome sheep. Audrey meets Jean (Gad Elmaleh), a fatigued barman and dog-walker and is tricked into thinking he is another one of the men she preys on. Jean quickly falls for Audrey and accidentally falls into her same profession. Audrey shows Jean the tools of the trade and how she works and they are soon competing for the most expensive and extravagant gifts. Priceless is an enlightening, elegant and comical film worth seeing.

My g'friend said it reminded her of the movie Dirty Rotten Scoundrels" with a "Breakfast at Tiffany's" feel to it. We both enjoyed it, and there were several laugh-out-loud moments...

It was a charming and entertaining movie. A little on the long side. I enjoyed it overall.

Even the movie wasn't all that spectacular, I found myself watching it simply because Audrey Tautou is in the movie. You can't start an Audrey Tautou movie and not finish it!! The storyline was not the most original idea, the script wasn't all that, but overall the movie is nice. It's definitely a feel-good movie.

An almost hollywood style romantic comedy that is french! does that exist? An extreme departure from french film's psychological existentialism that leaves you hanging at the end of the movie.
More cute than philosophical, more feel-good than heart-wrenching. I love the scene where Tatou was giving her counterpart a lesson on the art of seduction. Some magical moments, but somehow I miss those french movies that left me hanging...
If you haven't seen "diving bell and the butterfly" (the total opposite), i would recommend it head and shoulder above this one...
If you want to second-time date movie that is safe, this is it!
