There's a nice contrast between the inherent beauty of the city and whatever wild antics the characters are engaged in. Comedy films showing some of the most famous Parisian landmarks are especially popular. Many of them make use of the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, or the Arc de Triomphe. These places are inherently cinematic.
