Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This French comedy about an open adulterous affair was a smash hit in the U.S. and received three Oscar nominations, including Best Actress Marie-Christine Barrault; Schumacher's American remake makes clear why the original Gallic film is superior."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"A spicy French romantic drama"
