What are the advantages or drawbacks in having double nationality and/or citizenship (within the EU or worldwide) ?

I am french, and plan on asking for british nationality (my father is english, i think it'll be relatively easy). But given that both UK and France are part of Europe and therefore citizens have the same rights (I am thinking in work terms... EU citizens can work anywhere in Europe) what would be my advantages in having both nationality?
I figure I could vote in UK at some point if I decide to live there. What else? Does aving a double nationality 'sells' when you're looking for a job anywhere?
Would be the citizen of a country that's part of a Commonwealth would help in any way should I choose to study in, say, Canada or Australia?
Finally - is there any drawbacks? I can't think of any, minus one: I'd have to eventually give up one of my citizenships if I one day choose to live and become a citizen of a non-european country, like the US of A...
