Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Movies that truly have the capacity to delight - that amuse and lift the spirits and create a warm feeling - are rare. "Romantics Anonymous" is one of those rare delights."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"An adorable, quirky chocolatier looking for love? One guess which country this heavily whimsical comedy hails from."
‑ Sara Stewart, New York Post
"Flighty, feather-light French romantic comedy...A very pleasant treat."
‑ Jim Schembri, 3AW
"Romantics Anonymous is a delightfully sweet comedy where love, chocolate and social anxiety blend to make a deliciously offbeat treat."
‑ Matthew Pejkovic, Matt's Movie Reviews
"The tone is unashamedly sentimental, and the performances are too often played for laughs, so the film ends up feeling rather thin and inconsequential"
‑ Andrew L. Urban, Urban Cinefile
"It'll be too light and frothy for some tastes, but it's bound to leave you with a warm glow."
‑ David Jenkins, Time Out
"Boy meets girl. Boy likes girl. Girl faints and boy jumps out the bathroom window."
‑ Eric Hynes, Time Out New York
"If you really like French ambience, this film is drowning in it. But don't expect Amelie or Chocolat. This film is far less witty, charming and moving than those films, no matter how desperately it tries to emulate them."
‑ CJ Johnson, ABC Radio (Australia)
"Whilst I hoped there would be a little more substance, I still found myself caught up in the charm of this farce."
‑ Matthew Toomey, ABC Radio Brisbane
"As sweet as chocolate that's spiced with bitterness of varying degrees, this whimsical charmer about two eccentrics weighed down by anxiety, is a delight"
‑ Louise Keller, Urban Cinefile
"A mug of warm cocoa with marshmallow topping that produces a comfy feel-good glow."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"Améris's recipe here calls for everything in moderation, resulting in a movie that never threatens to offend nor, particularly, to delight, though it does offer a good view on a modestly charming actors' duet."
‑ Nick Pinkerton, Village Voice
"So much is conveyed in what isn't said: the half-finished words, the broken syllables, the inarticulate noises, even the silences."
‑ Tim Martain, The Mercury
"Set in Lyon amid the world of chocolate making, this charmingly old-fashioned French romantic comedy is a truly mouth-watering confection."
‑ Jason Best, Movie Talk
"The script is witty, the chemistry just right, and the overall effect so sweet it's a little like eating too much chocolate."
‑ Rebecca Barry,
