Consensus: This farcical French comedy of errors is well-acted, but the absurdities feel too forced to make such a light confection work.

Richard Nilsen
Arizona Republic

A light, entertaining comedy with little, if any, redeeming value, other than a few good laughs.

Rex Roberts
Film Journal International

Salvadori and his fellow screenwriters invent clever complications to keep us amused.

The movie doesn't ask you to laugh at somebody's unhappiness, just the incredibly absurd situations that arise when misery has two goofballs for company.

Philadelphia Inquirer

Although the ingredients are excellent, the result is an overcooked comedy more often provoking indigestion than laughter.

Dennis Schwartz
Ozus' World Movie Reviews

This dumb romantic comedy is not in the same class with Jean Renoir's masterful Boudu Saved From Drowning, though it toys with the same plot line.

Apres Vous ... is less peculiar but considerably more contrived, more forced than Girl on the Bridge.

Terry Lawson
Detroit Free Press

A lightweight farce that remains enjoyable primarily for the time spent with Auteuil.

Sean P. Means
Salt Lake Tribune

Auteuil... finds himself in Antoine's situation, helping out a hapless wreck and being dragged down in the process.

John Beifuss
Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

Unfolds with the light and civilized touch that Americans associate with French farce, but it's as contrived as any Hollywood comedy.
