Bailly intends to dissect the fragile psyche of a free spirited non-Jewish fashion model,but for me, the important subject of the film is Francois, a quasi-handsome Jewish veterinarian living in Paris, who has a latent but ongoing identity crisis.

There's much to criticize about this somewhat farcical romantic comedy, but the talent, beauty and pixieish whimsy of Audrey Tautou isn't one of them.

It's barely got enough material for a 24-minute episode of Friends, let alone enough juice to solve the mysteries of the universe.

You could watch a heroine barrel into a messy romance all day, provided that she's a lot less dopey than this, but few of Michele's foibles make us sympathize with her.

I was trying to decide what annoyed me most about God is Great... I'm Not, and then I realized that I just didn't care.

The plot grows thin soon, and you find yourself praying for a quick resolution.
March 6, 2003
An incredibly irritating comedy about thoroughly vacuous people...manages to embody the worst excesses of nouvelle vague without any of its sense of fun or energy.

God is great, the movie's not.

Although God Is Great addresses interesting matters of identity and heritage, it's hard to shake the feeling that it was intended to be a different kind of film.

You can practically smell the patchouli oil.

This off-putting French romantic comedy is sure to test severely the indulgence of fans of Amélie.

Audrey Tatou has a knack for picking roles that magnify her outrageous charm, and in this literate French comedy, she's as morning-glory exuberant as she was in Amélie.

Too infuriatingly quirky and taken with its own style.

I am convinced [Tautou] can do anything, and I recommend the movie almost solely because of her.

We never truly come to care about the main characters and whether or not they'll wind up together, and Michele's spiritual quest is neither amusing nor dramatic enough to sustain interest.

Michele is a such a brainless flibbertigibbet that it's hard to take her spiritual quest at all seriously.
November 8, 2002
A movie in which two not very absorbing characters are engaged in a romance you can't wait to see end.
November 8, 2002
Simplistic fluff-ball of whimsy.

A light-hearted French film about the spiritual quest of a fashion model seeking peace of mind while in a love affair with a veterinarian who is a non-practicing Jew.

How much you are moved by the emotional tumult of [François and Michèle's] relationship depends a lot on how interesting and likable you find them.
