French photographer Marion (Julie Delpy) and American interior designer Jack (Adam Goldberg) attempt to re-infuse their relationship with romance by taking a holiday in Europe. Their trip to Venice didn't really work out - they both came down with gastroenteritis. They have higher hopes for Paris. But the combination of Marion's overbearing non-English speaking parents, flirtatious ex-boyfriends, and Jack's obsession with photographing every famous Parisian tombstone and conviction that French condoms are too small, only adds fuel to the fire. Will they be able to salvage their relationship? Will they ever have sex again? Or will they merely manage to perfect the art of arguing?
