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.

John Hartl
Seattle Times

French fluff at its creepiest: illogical, exasperating, overlong and based on characters who are just as empty as the creatures who inhabit Hollywood fluff.

Rex Roberts
Film Journal International

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

Carrie Rickey
Philadelphia Inquirer

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

Connie Ogle
Miami Herald

As the character gains confidence, Garcia tones down the tics and actually makes Louis likable.

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.

Terry Lawson
Detroit Free Press

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

Andrew Sarris
New York Observer

From the beginning I found the plot contrivances more than a little forced, and the behavior of the various characters improbably extreme.

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.
