My Best Friend (2007)
Critic Consensus: Although the plot may sound contrived, the performances of Daniel Auteuil and Dany Boon manage to turn My Best Friend into an earnest and witty romp.

Critic Reviews for My Best Friend
Patrice Leconte has taken a story about male friendship, in all its posturing and potential vulnerability, and turned it into a light, smart, crowd-pleasing comedy.
Auteuil and Boon's appealing performances keep the film engaging throughout, but it's easy to pine for a dark, challenging film with this premise, pitched more toward a harrowing emotional reckoning than this film's ambiguous but inevitable happy ending.
It's better when it's threatening, but Leconte knows his audience.
One looks to Leconte for some of the finest, most sophisticated and compassionate filmmaking coming out of France, not for a situation comedy.
A sweetly surprising treatise on friendship.
Although Leconte allows for a certain warmth to run through the film, he thankfully stays away from sentimentality. Therein lays the charm.
Audience Reviews for My Best Friend
I was drawn in by Julie Gayet, uplifted by Dany Boon and mesmerized by Daniel Auteuil. Delightful and light-hearted.
Enjoyable French comedy. Struck a chord with me - I could relate to the socially awkward main character!
Intriguing premise is stretched too far. The antisocial lead isn't believably friendless and the sociable friend's anxieties contrived.
