Critic Reviews

  • "Little White Lies" is a bit too long, but has plenty of Gallic charm. More...
  • A sprawling, initially engaging French comedy-drama that became a hit in France but ultimately underwhelms. More...
  • The script is banal, but the acting company and the locations are easy on the eyes. More...
  • The overall tone of "Little White Lies" feels off, or maybe it just doesn't translate to American audiences. More...
  • At times, it's amusing. At times, it's tragic. At times, it's romantic. But, like many vacations, it's way, way too long. More...
  • As the movie wears on ... the melodrama amps up to a final scene capable of draining any remaining pathos. More...
  • Little White Lies wants to capture something momentous and meaningful in these people's lives. But ultimately it's hard to care. More...
  • There's a fly-on-the-wall quality to it that adds a voyeuristic zing to the proceedings and gives this French take on "The Big Chill" its particular warmth. More...
  • It's just that, when it's over, 2 1/2 hours seems too big an investment for just pretty good. More...
  • The movie is 154 minutes long. It probably doesn't need to be that long, but there's an advantage to sinking into this milieu, growing familiar with the characters and learning their stories. More...
