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.

Leconte has crafted an at once thoughtful, engaging, lighthearted, and melancholic entertainment about loneliness and friendship

This is a movie that sneaks up on you and grabs your heart before you know it. I would want to watch it with my best friend.

French though it may be, My Best Friend effectively addresses what is a universal human condition.

It isn't always believable, but it is entertaining and funny, with an edge to it.

A wonderful, rare film that portrays one of the most under-represented but universal human neuroses: the desire for friendship or platonic love.

Daniel Auteuil is reliable as usual.

You might well find it very silly, but it grew on me, and it's certainly based on an interesting premise.

This is yet another demonstration of the staggering versatility of Auteuil, surely the finest French actor of his generation.

It's better when it's threatening, but Leconte knows his audience.

Patrice Leconte's latest is a little light and a little telegraphed, but still quite enjoyable.

So begins the dance for Patrice Leconte's film that, in the tradition of Norman McLaren (cross-reference below) is more a celebration of movement and music than a parable for our over-communicative, friend-lite, acquaintance-rich society.

This is one of the better films to come out of France this summer.

There's no great surprise in where this Odd Couple pairing is headed, but...it'sc quite enjoyable to tag along on the journey.

A sweetly surprising treatise on friendship.
August 24, 2007
Although Leconte allows for a certain warmth to run through the film, he thankfully stays away from sentimentality. Therein lays the charm.

Although it's not a French parlor farce, My Best Friend appears headed that way at times. Then it has the courage to ride a bittersweet wave to something more meaningful.
