This delightfully spirited film is perfectly cast, and it's hard to imagine how Daniel Auteuil, José Garcia and Sandrine Kiberlain could possibly improve upon their irresistible, multifaceted portrayals.

Entertainment Weekly
Suicidal depression has rarely looked so amusing.

Maybe the movie does so much dawdling and meandering so we'll have more time to bask in their presence; in any case, the otherwise pleasant picture uses up its ideas long before it uses up its running time.

Variety
Elegantly written, well-thesped comedy is too hermetic and bittersweet to be laugh-out-loud funny, but sustains a fairly successful ratio of uncomfortable situations to amusing solutions.

Chicago Reader
Reasonably entertaining but predictable.

The Hollywood Reporter
The story itself is silly and exaggerated.

Village Voice
Praised be the gods that this rom-com is French. If not, we'd be haunted by visions of a Focker-ish Dustin Hoffman rescuing a suicidal Tony Shalhoub then orchestrating the TV germophobe's reunification with ex Lisa Kudrow. Vive la France!

The A.V. Club
It's sweet, but way too silly.
50
L.A. Weekly
The best that can be said for this excitable, harmless romantic comedy is that it is smoothly directed by Pierre Salvadori.

Had it had the concision and symmetry of a classic French farce, Après Vous could have been an irresistible laugh machine.
