Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The cast of renegades is as appealing as ever."
‑ Marta Barber, Miami Herald
"It's an effortlessly charming ensemble, and Klapisch's characters (most of them anyway) reveal depths of feeling that compensate for the film's lightweight tone and too-long running time."
‑ Jeff Shannon, Seattle Times
"Anyone who loved L'Auberge Espagnole should at least like its sequel as something of a guilty fling."
‑ Christopher Campbell, Cinematical
"It's hard to decide what's prettier in Russian Dolls: the people or the places. Either way, we win."
‑ Chris Hewitt (St. Paul), St. Paul Pioneer Press
"Klapisch has a light, springy touch and a real adoration for his characters and their Paris/London locations, and even at a lengthy 126 minutes, the film never drags."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"For those who saw and loved L'Auberge Espagnole, Russian Dolls automatically becomes of interest, but writer-director Cedric Klapisch can't quite make the case for it as a stand-alone experience."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"[Xavier] turns this film into more of a self-fixated memoir, less of a blithe ensemble piece."
‑ Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune
"His directorial hand is so handsomely assured and his cast so charming that it's easy to succumb to his let-me-entertain-you blandishments"
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"If you saw and enjoyed the previous film, you'll know what to expect, and you'll enjoy it."
‑ Jack Garner, Rochester Democrat and Chronicle
"(T)he film is all sex and style, with a photogenic cast leaping across Europe while the director plays narrative games."
‑ Sean Axmaker, Seattle Post-Intelligencer
"Klapisch has made something deliciously close to a nature documentary about the young, the foolish, and the alive."
‑ Ty Burr, Boston Globe
"Fluffily enjoyable."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"Essentially this is Espagnole on repeat, as if the lessons from the former film had been fully expunged after five years on ice."
‑ Christopher Null, Filmcritic.com
"With its crackling dialogue and attractive, fully rounded characters, Russian Dolls puts American movies on similar subjects to shame."
‑ Michele Kenner, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
"A sort of wandering rom-com epic -- kicking romantic fallacies in the ribs while capturing something essential about the solipsism and dreams of young urbanites."
‑ Mike Russell, Oregonian
