A heavily contrived, undemanding and often funny mainstream Paris-set comedy-drama.

Remains in conventional (if enjoyable) movie territory from start to finish.

(...) Es el tipo de película sobre la cual no puede decirse nada demasiado positivo ni demasiado negativo. A veces está bueno ir al cine sabiendo que no hay que esperar más que eso.

Proof that the French can make romcoms as annoying as ours.

November 2, 2007 Full Review Source: Independent

Prominent base notes of chauvinism and insincerity here.

A stilted, intermittently winsome story.

A sugary romcom from France, thin on characterisation but carried off with a certain brio.

November 2, 2007 Full Review Source: Guardian

A jaunty, very funny comedy juiced up by a light touch and crack timing from two perfectly matched lead actors.

November 2, 2007 Full Review Source: Film4

Every now and then the wry character-comedy that I Do could have been peeks out, only to be kicked in the head by - say - a cringeworthy fake bondage scene.

November 2, 2007 Full Review Source:

The old gender-tussle tune is played lightly and wittily, with a streak of mischief peppering any risk of schmaltz.

Charming performances make this an easy watch.

Perhaps, buried in all of this, there is meant to be some comment on the emasculated state of modern man -- but really it is the film itself that comes off half-cocked.

Family relationships are in the spotlight in this pull-me, push-me tug of war of emotions that tackles all our differences head-on. It's funny and sweet.

Audience Reviews for Prete-moi ta main (I Do: How to Get Married and Stay Single)

Great funny, heart-warming tale about love, commitment and family. How sweet and enjoyable this French film is. And Alain Chabat is hilarious and he made his original idea of this comedy-romantic story amazing.

The first half of this was entirely predictable and almost lost this viewer as it strictly followed the script. The second half proved much more entertaining as the pseudo-couple, Luis (Alain Chabat) and Emma (Charlotte Gainsbourg) moved on to Plan B after Plan A backfired. We always knew how it was going to end up, but the journey proved to at last move in some interesting directions after the failure of the initial plan. There was an interesting dynamic playing out with the women proving to be stronger willed than the men. The subplot regarding Emma's desire to adopt was handled well, and the social worker brought a little added humor to the plot with her constant confusion over Emma's status. If one can make it through the first half, there is a payoff at the end, but this could have been improved with a few more twists early on. Two stars for the first half, and four for the second, average out to a three star bit of french fluff.
