Critic Reviews for The Stroller Strategy
In what universe would a reasonable mother entrust a virtual stranger with her infant while she's in the hospital?
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.
Cute to the point of blandness, tyro French helmer Clement Michel's vaguely amiable laffer scrupulously avoids all ambiguity, innovation or flashes of wit.
The result is not continuous laughter but 90 minutes in a kind of aerated existence, just credible enough to be amusing.
Writer-director Clément Michel forgot to give his characters personality, let alone charm.
Unsophisticated, but would be fine if it either committed to an even more mannered, farcical tone or had more convincingly sketched, fully dimensional characters. It does neither.
A script like this has dozens of possibilities, but most have been mined out by other films
