Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A tasty French romantic comedy diversion with just a touch of seriousness thrown into the mix."
‑ Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
"The next time you're invited to a French dinner party, you might want to give it a pass, if the tedious proceedings in Change of Plans are any indication."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"Supported by mild jokes and concluding with a trough of trivial narrative closures, 'Change of Plans' not only fails to offer anything original (Oh, Voltaire), the direction is noticeable for its incompetence"
‑ John Esther, UR Chicago Magazine
"Confirmed Francophiles, lovers of upscale humor and those with European leanings will be completely seduced."
‑ Richard Mowe, Boxoffice Magazine
"Change of Plans, Danièle Thompson's skillfully executed comedy of manners, is either deeply profound or insupportably shallow--most likely the latter."
‑ Andrew Schenker, Slant Magazine
"In sum, it's a good, not great, movie of a type I like but that most people don't."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"Refuses to take anything too seriously, staking out a middle ground between melodrama and farce."
‑ A.O. Scott, New York Times
"Una comedia agridulce más bien previsible, intrascendente, para nada memorable, aunque no exenta de cierto encanto inocente."
‑ Enrique Buchichio, Uruguay Total
"A French film about the messy and perplexing dimensions of mid-life crises and the different ways people deal with them."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"There's nothing even a little bit original about any of this, but in a way that's the point."
‑ Andrew O'Hehir,
"The acting by Seigner, Marina Hands, Karin Viard, Patrick Bruel and other French notables is first-rate, although their characters and what they have to say are trite."
‑ V.A. Musetto, New York Post
"...the light cinematic menu served here offers little more than a confusing pot au feu of guests and their problems."
‑ Doris Toumarkine, Film Journal International
"Middling, middle-class entertainment aimed at the midpoint between comedy and drama, mass appeal and sophistication, Change of Plans is eager to please and easy to dismiss."
‑ Eric Hynes, Movieline
