Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Anna Massey, who appears fleetingly as Sand's mother, offers a demonstration of how to make an overpoweringly fine impression in only a few minutes' time."
‑ Janet Maslin, New York Times
"Director James Lapine pushes the story to its entertaining fullest, exuding a period-costumed sense of fun."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"It's mildly funny, mildly dramatic, and well-acted enough."
‑ Michael W. Phillips, Jr., Goatdog's Movies
"Despite all this assembled talent, the film stubbornly refuses to come to life."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"A blissfully high-spirited romp about the circle of writers and musicians in 1830s Paris."
‑ Hal Hinson, Washington Post
"All the primary players are wonderful."
‑ Chris Hicks, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"A disorganized, confusing but amusing biopic."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"A rather conventional romantic comedy, with the requisite plot devices to provide obstacles for the would-be lovers, but the story is well told."
‑ David Conner, Apollo Guide
"As a salon full of characters, Impromptu provides great fly on the wall fun."
‑ Kathleen Maher, Austin Chronicle
