Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"In the end, we don't see enough of Cannes and maybe too much of Kaz. But you have to accept or reject Jaglom as you might a walk on the Croisette, taking the bitter with the sweet."
‑ Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune
"One of [Jaglom's] better efforts -- a wry and sometime bitter movie about love."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"should be edited down to a 5-minute promotional trailer"
‑ John A. Nesbit, Old School Reviews
"This is impressively carried off by a fine cast, particularly the luminous Aimee and Greta Scacchi whose career has intriguing parallels with those of the character she plays."
‑ Urban Cinefile Critics, Urban Cinefile
"The cast is so low-wattage that none of the characters comes off as big ... and the setting remains indistinct."
‑ Chris Hewitt (St. Paul), St. Paul Pioneer Press
"A picture as charmingly insubstantial as the world it invokes."
‑ Rick Groen, Globe and Mail
"Jaglom has never been required viewing, but he has never been this trivial, either."
‑ Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald
"Those looking for a light and decidedly untraditional comedy will find some smart and witty exchanges within; those who consider Adam Sandler an underrated genius may be bored stiff."
‑ Scott Weinberg, Apollo Guide
"Jaglom ... put[s] the audience in the privileged position of eavesdropping on his characters"
‑ Philip Martin, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
"Jaglom's latest is his most mature work to date, one with fresh insights into the people who decide what we experience at our cineplexes."
‑ William A. Sievert, Orlando Weekly
"At its best ... Festival in Cannes bubbles with the excitement of the festival in Cannes."
‑ Jay Boyar, Orlando Sentinel
"The locale ... remains far more interesting than the story at hand."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"Henry Jaglom's lighthearted satire of Hollywood wheeler-dealers goes as far as the director is willing to bite..."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"The seaside splendor and shallow, beautiful people are nice to look at while you wait for the story to get going."
‑ Karina Montgomery, Cinerina
"A witty, trenchant, wildly unsentimental but flawed look at the ins and outs of modern moviemaking."
‑ Joe Baltake, Sacramento Bee
