Let's just say that this is not a film that will endear itself to a female audience.

The socio-economic moral is ladled on like great big dollops of paella.
July 5, 2012
Luchini almost rescues it from its own complacency, but the script is equal parts blocked toilets and soft-boiled eggs.

Que pasa? Rien d'importance.

The film sidesteps all complexities and leaves us with a closing shot that should come with a bucket.
April 10, 2012
What is an occasionally charming upstairs/downstairs comedy is overshadowed by one unintentionally creepy relationship.

The film is better at exploring the human connection between Jean-Louis and the maids as a group than it is delving into a romantic connection between Jean-Louis and Maria.

Charming performances and the naivete of the characters go a long way toward smoothing over the characters' perpetuation of class distinctions and patronizing attitudes.

This is one French comedy that could have used a little more hand wringing and a little less whimsy.
October 22, 2011
If this weren't such a namby-pamby sitcom with cardboard-cutout characters in the first place, it would be borderline offensive.
October 21, 2011
A sporadically amusing, occasionally off-putting French farce.

"The Women on the 6th Floor'' is delicate and sensitive and utter bollocks - a bourgeois wet dream made to soothe the souls and stir the loins of powerful men in midlife crisis.

For a smarter take on personal discovery, you'd be better off watching Luchini's last film, the delightful French farce "Potiche."
October 7, 2011
Sorry, but I'm not buying it -- even if the whole thing's set in the free-loving '60s.
October 6, 2011
Never confronts the uncomfortable power dynamics underlying its arc of self-discovery, and never digs deeper than its broad generalizations about being poor but happy vs. rich but soulless.
October 5, 2011
There's nothing remarkable going on in Jean-Philippe Le Guay's pillowy, Vicodin pill of a film.
October 5, 2011
Philippe Le Guay's trite-to-intolerable tale on the discreet eye-opening of the bourgeoisie.
October 4, 2011
[An] unnecessary rehashing of the earthy virtues of low-paid laborers versus the stiffness of the bourgeoisie.
July 21, 2011
Over an hour in, the film would like to be some kind of reverse Ball of Fire, but none of it is remotely believable nor funny. Luchini is a big dud and Verbeke has a nice smile, but has nowhere to take it except the kitchen and upstairs.
July 15, 2011
[A] comforting charmer.
