Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This is one of those goofball romcoms where crazy things just keep on happening. Its wackiness drives you nuts."
‑ Cath Clarke, Time Out
"Some French humour still eludes me, and A Perfect Plan is one of those rom-coms that irritates more than amuses."
‑ Kate Muir, Times [UK]
"The French don't always get the balance right in their farcical romantic comedies, but they usually win us over with goofy charm. Alas, the plan never quite comes together this time."
‑ Rich Cline, Contactmusic.com
"Contrived but occasionally diverting ..."
‑ Stephen Carty, Radio Times
"Diane Kruger's looks are fetishised in this laboured and soft-headed farce about beauty and a family curse."
‑ Sophie Monks Kaufman, Little White Lies
"The couple's chemistry is persuasive, especially in the crucial second half, and Chaumeil again demonstrates a keen eye for balancing character and situational comedy against a glamorous backdrop."
‑ Boyd van Hoeij, Variety
"People do screwy things in screwball comedies - and we're tickled when the filmmakers pull off the daftness with panache. Yet it's hard to raise a smile from the laboriously contrived kookiness of Diane Kruger and Dany Boon's wildly mismatched couple."
‑ Jason Best, Movie Talk
"With rom-coms like this, who needs warcrimes? This is the most cruel, most contrived romantic comedy I have ever had the displeasure to endure."
‑ MaryAnn Johanson, Flick Filosopher
"The idiotic plot is exasperating and the ridiculous behaviour beggars belief. You just don't believe a word of it. The daft premise doesn't help."
‑ Allan Hunter, Daily Express
"Kruger (a long way from Inglourious Basterds) and Boon obviously think they're very amusing here in scenes of embarrassing slapstick, but director Pascal (Heartbreaker) Chaumeil has a comic touch that's as light as a français sledgehammer."
‑ David 'Mad Dog' Bradley, Rip It Up
"Uneven follow-up to Heartbreaker offers a similar pitch but significantly less laughs."
‑ Jordan Mintzer, Hollywood Reporter
"There's nothing perfect or planned about Diane Kruger's madcap scheme in this belatedly released 2012 Gallic romcom."
‑ James Mottram, Total Film
"It requires you to suspend disbelief but go with it and A Perfect Plan is funny, winning and romantic."
‑ Ian Freer, Empire Magazine
"None of the obvious plotholes would matter if it was in any way romantic or funny. Oh well."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"Those who believe that French cinema invented all that is fun and delicious about movie romances may want to file this insipid, high-concept embarrassment in the exception-that-proves-the-rule basket."
‑ Simon Foster, sbs.com.au
