Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Isabelle Huppert may be approaching self-parody as an icon of Gallic frigidity, yet the talented writer-director Anne Fontaine puts that to excellent use in this broad, obvious, but consistently funny bedroom farce."
‑ J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
""My Worst Nightmare" isn't great, but it isn't apologizing for anything, either. Plus, I laughed out loud at least three times."
‑ Wesley Morris, Boston Globe
"The terrific leads dig into their clichéd roles and come up with characters to savor, and a relationship to root for."
‑ Gerald Peary, Boston Phoenix
""My Worst Nightmare," though predictable, moves along nicely enough for most of its 99 minutes, thanks to an offbeat chemistry between Huppert (who's very good at looking appalled) and the very relaxed Poelvoorde."
‑ Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
"No one loves a broad comedy like the French, but Gallic touches of restraint tend to keep such light entertainment pleasing rather than blundering."
‑ Kyle Smith, New York Post
"The hilarity of the film creeps up slowly and from every angle, not through the facile immediacy of short-lived laughter."
‑ Diego Costa, Slant Magazine
"[Huppert] can't get laughs where there are none, and she can't buy a laugh in the movie's second half."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"Its tepid satire of art world pretensions culminates with a visual dirty joke that is mildly amusing but still not worth the wait."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"...a terminally uneven piece of work that will leave most viewers flummoxed and frustrated."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
