A perfectly pleasant little piffle.

Top Critic

A simple equation, perhaps, but when it comes to comedy, simpler is frequently funnier.

Top Critic

Serreau's direction is bright and confident, avoiding the saccharine pitfalls of the material.

Noisy, and not short of unison waddling walks.

Time Out
Top Critic

Serreau is too self-consciously serious to embrace her stereotypes, thus to find new fun in them, and too academic to create characters that have comic lives of their own.

Top Critic

No one with the slightest knowledge of human nature will be able to find a single moment of this film to believe. It is all formula, every last miserable frame of it.

There isn't too much comedy in this one but it does have a heart to it (which does take a while to come out). Surprisingly, the American remake is the better of the two so go and see that one.
