Critic Reviews for Paulette

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (3)

Far too broad and simplistic to enjoy as the offbeat soufflé it so desperately aims to be.

Lafont is a treasure, projecting the fired-up two-strikes-and-you're-out sass of a French Shirley MacLaine. The movie is pleasantly amusing, but she's enthralling.

It's all pure hokum, perfect for a Shirley MacLaine remake, but it's lovely to see Lafont carrying a film so effortlessly.

Light, breezy, mildly amusing and somewhat silly at times. Bernadette Lafont gives a lively, engaging performance.

Paulette offers a heap of laughs and ultimately delights like a shelf of colorful fresh pastries.
