Supported by mild jokes and concluding with a trough of trivial narrative closures, 'Change of Plans' not only fails to offer anything original (Oh, Voltaire), the direction is noticeable for its incompetence

A tasty French romantic comedy diversion with just a touch of seriousness thrown into the mix.

Una comedia agridulce más bien previsible, intrascendente, para nada memorable, aunque no exenta de cierto encanto inocente.

In sum, it's a good, not great, movie of a type I like but that most people don't.

There's nothing even a little bit original about any of this, but in a way that's the point.

...the light cinematic menu served here offers little more than a confusing pot au feu of guests and their problems.

The next time you're invited to a French dinner party, you might want to give it a pass, if the tedious proceedings in Change of Plans are any indication.

Confirmed Francophiles, lovers of upscale humor and those with European leanings will be completely seduced.

Refuses to take anything too seriously, staking out a middle ground between melodrama and farce.

The acting by Seigner, Marina Hands, Karin Viard, Patrick Bruel and other French notables is first-rate, although their characters and what they have to say are trite.

In almost every ... way, Change Of Plans is smart about the transformative pace of modern life.

Middling, middle-class entertainment aimed at the midpoint between comedy and drama, mass appeal and sophistication, Change of Plans is eager to please and easy to dismiss.

Even the film's galaxy of stars can't keep this black hole of c'est la vie soap-operatics from collapsing upon itself.

A comedy of manners in need of Ritalin.

Slant Magazine
August 23, 2010
Change of Plans, Danièle Thompson's skillfully executed comedy of manners, is either deeply profound or insupportably shallow--most likely the latter.
