A light, entertaining comedy with little, if any, redeeming value, other than a few good laughs.
August 25, 2005
Although the ingredients are excellent, the result is an overcooked comedy more often provoking indigestion than laughter.
August 5, 2005
A lightweight farce that remains enjoyable primarily for the time spent with Auteuil.
July 10, 2005
Plays like some kind of weak joke in which two men keep repeating the line to each other.
July 8, 2005
French fluff at its creepiest: illogical, exasperating, overlong and based on characters who are just as empty as the creatures who inhabit Hollywood fluff.
July 8, 2005
As the character gains confidence, Garcia tones down the tics and actually makes Louis likable.
July 7, 2005
From the beginning I found the plot contrivances more than a little forced, and the behavior of the various characters improbably extreme.
June 30, 2005
The premise is razor thin, but [Daniel Auteuil] sells it with everything he's got.
June 24, 2005
The misunderstandings and crisscrossing agendas never build to critical mass; the movie doesn't go insane, and it needs to.
June 18, 2005
A sweet, if dramatically overlong, trifle.
June 17, 2005
Lacks farcical insanity and settles for being a sitcom, not a very good one.
June 16, 2005
There isn't much to the movie, and you can see where it's going from kilometers away. But Auteuil gives the silliness a surprising heft.
June 10, 2005
A film that moves you to laugh has become as rare as one that makes you cry, so Apres Vous should be cherished for its seriously funny moments.
June 9, 2005
The story crash-lands in contrivance, losing its way in the third act.
June 3, 2005
Nothing lives up to its name like French farce, and director Pierre Salvadori's bit of nonsense about a good Samaritan who aborts a stranger's suicide attempt then dedicates himself to making the man's life worth living exceeds the limits of the genre.
June 3, 2005
Parlez-vous farce? Aprs Vous speaks the lingo haltingly, like the French you sort of learned in high school.
June 2, 2005
This delightfully spirited film is perfectly cast, and it's hard to imagine how Daniel Auteuil, Jos Garcia and Sandrine Kiberlain could possibly improve upon their irresistible, multifaceted portrayals.
June 2, 2005
A meandering comedy that offers the pleasure of watching the great French actor Daniel Auteuil as the world's most overzealous, uptight good Samaritan.
June 1, 2005
Suicidal depression has rarely looked so amusing.
