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

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

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

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.

A scrumptious little film that has good intentions despite a general lack of direction.

Plays like one of Woody Allen's lesser ensemble pictures, flitting from one upscale character to another just long enough to wring polite enjoyment from their individual tics.

It isn't very ambitious but it's pleasant in both its poise and reserve.

Often amusing, thanks largely to the effervescent Hudson, the Parisian locales and the film's humorous references to the oil-and-water differences between the French and the Americans.

...while the movie does occasionally suffer from an overstuffed plot, there's no denying that Le Divorce is consistently entertaining.

The film's most successful performances come from those actors who have a subtle but firm grip on their otherwise skimpy characters -- Lhermitte and Caron, in particular.
