Neither a "gay" movie nor a straight one; it is simply a funny one.

Entertainment Weekly
Cagey, high gloss comedy.
88
Baltimore Sun
The movie's steady good humor and respect for character is pleasing - even energizing.
80
Rolling Stone
Auteuil and Depardieu spar hilariously, and writer-director Francis Veber, following "The Dinner Game," offers another delicious treat.
80
Wall Street Journal
An expertly developed farce that's very funny and surprisingly affecting in the bargain.
75
This is economy of style that Americans get only in Woody Allen movies -- and even that's not a guarantee.
75
Boston Globe
Perhaps not the most uproarious of Veber's farces, but entertaining and emotionally satisfying all the same.
75
Philadelphia Inquirer
It's a bright and breezy piece, and a refreshing alternative to the gross-out Hollywood comedies.
75
New York Daily News
A farce nearly as cracked as his previous "The Dinner Game."
75
New York Post
Hilarious French farce.
75
Charlotte Observer
Auteuil does an excellent job. He's like Marcello Mastroianni, whose naturalness also deluded people into thinking for a while that he wasn't a versatile actor.
