The new faces are interesting, but the old story isn't, especially when it starts to seem more improvised than scripted.
Funny, even after it has run out of ideas.
It's a likeable piece and a prime audition reel for both Rudd and Malco.
A culture clash comedy only half as clever as it thinks it is.
A culture-clash comedy that, in addition to being very funny, captures some of the discomfort and embarrassment of being a bumbling American in Europe.
Thanks to The Château's balance of whimsicality, narrative discipline and serious improvisation, almost every relationship and personality in the film yields surprises.
Unfunny from beginning to even after the end.
Once the viewer accepts the huge leaps of faith required in the film's premise, it's a lot of fun to strap oneself in and enjoy this goofy ride.
There are enough of the usual only-in-the-movies misunderstandings between Graham and Allen to delay any sort of resolution, but director Jesse Peretz neglects to fill the gaps with any memorably diverting action.
There's a spontaneity to The Chateau, a sense of light-heartedness, that makes it attractive throughout.
Has an improvisational feel and a cheesy, shot-on-video look (why do that when you've got the French countryside as subject?), but that first hour is still worth seeing.
The uneven movie does have its charms and its funny moments but not quite enough of them.
An ok movie that is entertaining and funny at times and then just boring at other.
