Consensus: Paris Je T'aime is uneven, but there are more than enough delightful moments in this omnibus tribute to the City of Lights to tip the scale in its favor.

You expect quality to vary from segment to segment, but the misses outweigh the hits by a depressingly high margin.

Even the least tales here flit by quickly enough to leave little bad aftertaste, and the best are savored like the last small bites of exquisite soufflés.

The bulk of the work, filtered through the idiosyncratic lens of the global art-house, relays a peculiar impression of the city that is at once familiar and displaced.

For directors and actors who usually work on projects that take years to develop and months to film, this must have been a really fun lark. For the viewer, it's a full cinematic feast.

Richard Nilsen
Arizona Republic

The best segments are as good as film gets; the losers can make you wince. On the whole, the good outweigh the bad and make the film feel like a minivacation in the City of Light.

A little uneven in style, tone and quality. But the picture that emerges of Paris is romantic, cosmopolitan and hopeful.

The best is saved for last: Payne's 14th arrondissement takes its time to create a Parisian epiphany that both pokes fun at an American tourist (Margo Martindale) and finds grace in her acceptance of a fragile moment of transcendence.

The most resonant moments in Paris, Je T'Aime happen to be the bleakest, and they're about immigrants and other outsiders.
