Critic Reviews for Love Me if You Dare

All Critics (88) | Top Critics (30)

Movie characters don't have to be nice, but they do need to be interesting. Nastiness without intrigue translates, in whatever language, to 'annoying.'

Audience Reviews for Love Me if You Dare

Artsy fartsy French film...never could get into this kind too much.

Not only is every scene between mother and son hideously corny and sentimental, but it is almost impossible to put up with two sociopaths so utterly immature, disgusting and loathsome amid conflicts that are all childish, irritating and artificial.

Super Reviewer

Juvenile and selfish, Love Me If You Dare dares to entertain in an appalling manner depicting an affair adulterated by irrationality, irresponsibility, and immaturity. Inspired by Amélie in cinematic behavior and approach, Love Me If You Dare is an intriguing confusion communicating offensive and embarrassing messages aggravated by improper humor.
