Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"We wander through Alain's life just as he does, never satisfied, and perhaps marveling at how dull bisexual promiscuity actually seems to be."
‑ Tom Sime, Dallas Morning News
"Despite a plethora of 'naughty bits,' it's a yawn."
‑ Jami Bernard, New York Daily News
"This movie is confused about what it's trying to be (it's works best as a sex farce), but it's kind of like the relationships in the movie - you sort of get what you want but still aren't satisfied."
‑ Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone,
"Although there's quite a bit of nudity and sex, the potentially sensationalistic story is acted with sincerity and directed with a creative eye."
‑ David Sterritt, Christian Science Monitor
"Certainly sexy, entertaining and provocative -- in several senses of the word -- but it's also tiresome as only a French film can be when everyone in it has only sex and amour on his or her mind and is deadly serious about both."
‑ Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
"In an effort to keep the plates spinning, the movie quickly devolves from risque to risible."
‑ Dennis Lim, Village Voice
"Eet ees all so vairy French, you see, and more zan a leetle tiresome."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"In aiming for zingy, topical farce, it goes strangely limp, coasting on the fumes of its own self-satisfied shock value."
‑ Scott Foundas, L.A. Weekly
"A sleek-looking film with intense performances by its cast, Confusion of Genders has nothing to say that wasn't put much more succinctly in a minor 50's pop hit for Sarah Vaughan ..."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"Though the film's frontal nudity and frequent sex scenes give it a superficial air of provocation, its characters are fundamentally conventional."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
