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

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

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.

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

A lightweight farce that remains enjoyable primarily for the time spent with Auteuil.
| Original Score: 3/4

Auteuil... finds himself in Antoine's situation, helping out a hapless wreck and being dragged down in the process.
| Original Score: 2/4

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.

Apres Vous ... is less peculiar but considerably more contrived, more forced than Girl on the Bridge.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
John Beifuss
Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
July 15, 2005
Unfolds with the light and civilized touch that Americans associate with French farce, but it's as contrived as any Hollywood comedy.
| Original Score: '2/4'
Duane Dudek
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
July 14, 2005
The result may be a high-concept soufflé, but its blackly comic tone and Auteuil's caffeinated whippet of a performance help lend it a cockeyed charm.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

If anyone tries to insist that you come along to see the film, it's best to reply, Après vous, and then head in the other direction.

Austin Chronicle
July 10, 2005
Plays like some kind of weak joke in which two men keep repeating the line to each other.

French fluff at its creepiest: illogical, exasperating, overlong and based on characters who are just as empty as the creatures who inhabit Hollywood fluff.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

You should come out of a film like Apres Vous with your heart as light and fluffy as a souffle. But this farce, credited to four chefs, er, writers, is as heavy and leaden as meatloaf.

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

Rob Thomas
Capital Times (Madison, WI)
July 8, 2005
What started off as a mild but enjoyable comic trifle got progressively more irritating as it wore on for almost two hours.
Full Review| Original Score: 2/4
Paula Nechak
Seattle Post-Intelligencer
July 7, 2005
The jokes run dry, the situation is redundant, the cast becomes tiresome and the running time is interminable.

The cuteness of the story wears off, but not the appeal of the leading men.
| Original Score: 3/4

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.
Cynthia Fuchs
PopMatters

While this moment is situated as comedy, it also underlines the dishonesty at the center of Louis and Antoine's evolving symbiosis.
