The tone veers capriciously from sophisticated comedy to broad farce and melodrama, with too many digressions for it to be more than fitfully amusing.
December 25, 2010
Not a frothy romantic comedy.

Naomi Watts steals the movie.

The movie is least successful when it tips from semi-serious to too-serious.

Its annoying need to be witty, profound, funny, and charming at all times makes what could have been a smart comedy a tiresome exercise in pleasing its audience.

At the end when we should be thinking about love and lessons of maturity, we are left with Isabel shrugging off her latest mistake and charging headlong into who-knows-what.

I saw this AFTER I watched Gigli, and it's STILL the worst film I've seen in the last twelve months.

...the ending does nothing to dispel the feeling that one has just wasted 117 minutes of one's life on empty gestures.

...[T]here is such an availability for space in which to work...dramatic or comedic, that Ivory leaves the living room floor open...without ever actually filling it.

Emerges as one of those concoctions in which the ingredients prove tastier than the finished dish.

October 28, 2003
A polished, if inconsequential, piece of film-making, and a welcome antidote to less subtle portrayals of Franco-American relations.

too many undeveloped plot strands and a dozen too many famous faces, who keep popping up and then disappearing like some kind of star-studded carousel.

Helmed by a modern auteur and featuring a stellar case, "Le Divorce" could have been a good film... but ironically it fell prey to lack of direction.

While Le Divorce does not attain the excellence of [previous Merchant/Ivory films'] interpersonal relationships, it certainly features an intelligent story complemented by fine work by a dizzying array of gifted actors...

Sets a gentle and conciliatory mood that takes a lot of the starch out of the love-hate relationship between France and America.

Oh sure, on paper, this all looks glamorous and tempting. But in reality, it is tiring and surprisingly boring.
