Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A heavily contrived, undemanding and often funny mainstream Paris-set comedy-drama."
‑ Wally Hammond, Time Out
"Proof that the French can make romcoms as annoying as ours."
‑ Anthony Quinn, Independent
"A sugary romcom from France, thin on characterisation but carried off with a certain brio."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"The old gender-tussle tune is played lightly and wittily, with a streak of mischief peppering any risk of schmaltz."
‑ Kevin Harley, Total Film
"Family relationships are in the spotlight in this pull-me, push-me tug of war of emotions that tackles all our differences head-on. It's funny and sweet."
‑ Urban Cinefile Critics, Urban Cinefile
"Remains in conventional (if enjoyable) movie territory from start to finish."
‑ Lisa Nesselson, Variety
"Prominent base notes of chauvinism and insincerity here."
‑ Tim Robey, Daily Telegraph
"A jaunty, very funny comedy juiced up by a light touch and crack timing from two perfectly matched lead actors."
‑ Leigh Singer, Film4
"Charming performances make this an easy watch."
‑ Anna Smith, Empire Magazine
"(...) Es el tipo de película sobre la cual no puede decirse nada demasiado positivo ni demasiado negativo. A veces está bueno ir al cine sabiendo que no hay que esperar más que eso."
‑ Enrique Buchichio, Uruguay Total
"A stilted, intermittently winsome story."
‑ Karl French, Financial Times
"Every now and then the wry character-comedy that I Do could have been peeks out, only to be kicked in the head by - say - a cringeworthy fake bondage scene."
‑ Ann Kelly,
"Perhaps, buried in all of this, there is meant to be some comment on the emasculated state of modern man -- but really it is the film itself that comes off half-cocked."
‑ Anton Bitel, Eye for Film
