Consensus: Though this French film features good acting, it lacks the wit and charm one would expect to see.

Gets bogged down in midlife-crisis cliches.

Eleanor Ringel Gillespie
Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Happily Ever After is never as insightful or as funny as Woody at his best. But the film has a fine-tuned approach to human behavior.

South Florida Sun-Sentinel

Attal taps into that unexpectedness -- the inability of just one person to captain the course of a relationship no matter how hard they try -- and he plays it for all it's worth.

Attal knows that no matter how adult we feel when we say, 'I do,' marriage is all child's play: jealousy, lies and pure, unconditional love. Perplexing, but not a bad option.

Washington Post

A meditation on the joys and frustrations of monogamy that manages to be a diverting and funny character study at least most of the time.

There are a few quality moments, but this fairy tale is far from enchanting.
