Critic Reviews for The Stroller Strategy

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (8)

In what universe would a reasonable mother entrust a virtual stranger with her infant while she's in the hospital?

Top Critic

It's a goofy, episodic trifle designed to induce swoons among the saccharine who coo every time they see a cute guy, or a baby, or a cute guy holding a baby while watching YouTube videos about how to change a diaper.

Los Angeles Times
Top Critic

Cute to the point of blandness, tyro French helmer Clement Michel's vaguely amiable laffer scrupulously avoids all ambiguity, innovation or flashes of wit.

Top Critic

Lukewarm rom-com has dubious ideas about parenthood.

The result is not continuous laughter but 90 minutes in a kind of aerated existence, just credible enough to be amusing.

Audience Reviews for The Stroller Strategy


It is hard not to fall in love with Raphaël Personnaz and Charlotte Le Bon, who are so charismatic and have such a great chemistry together, in this decent French comedy that may be predictable and full of clichés but has its moments and is funny enough to make it worth it.
