Despite the irregularities and setbacks of the script, the pace of the film is good and the casting does not do its job badly. [Full Review in Spanish]

Considering how her characters will often carry an impervious facade while privately fretting, "Lolo" may be the most ideal vehicle for her specific voice to date.

Julie Delpy is such a spectacular actress, especially in this role. It reminded me a little of her character in2 days in Paris, but more mature and twice as funny.
August 31, 2018
The film's intention is to be ludicrous and outrageous, taking from similar domestic comedies of the past, and it works just enough to keep you entertained, but by the end has you question "Lolo's" underdeveloped conclusion.
March 23, 2017
Perhaps Delpy and Boon are so popular in France that audiences will go to see them in an improbable rom-com with a tired premise; but even if you are a fan, you won't enjoy them in this movie.
November 15, 2016
Julie Delpy, who co-wrote the script with Eugenie Grandval, directs with the minimum of fuss, keeping the farce fast and funny.
September 9, 2016
An interesting and particular dark comedy with a very sharp humor. [Full review in Spanish]
June 2, 2016
The scattershot humour leads to an inconsistent tone, and a bit of confusion for the audience.
June 2, 2016
Lolo happily takes the rom-com road less travelled, the one marked "Danger."
June 2, 2016
It's shocking to see Delpy come up with a comedy as amateurishly awful as Lolo.
May 25, 2016
Delpy offers full and troubling rein with the complications of her light-to-dark comedy, with a son who can turn from sunshine to sonofab----on a centime.
May 1, 2016
Raw social satire tackling single motherhood, gender wars and generation gaps from an at times frantic, alternately bubbly and brutal female perspective.
March 31, 2016
I appreciated the effort Delpy, directing her sixth feature, puts forth in trying to spice up the genre. But that doesn't mean I enjoyed it.

Lolo is fun and fresh to look at: Violette's habitat is fashion-world, Centre-Pompidou new Paris, blessedly free of the Louvre-and-Seine shorthand that sells French movies to American audiences.
March 24, 2016
Delpy's portrayal - high-strung, neurotic, prone to mild hysterics - is so reminiscent of some of the actress's previous roles that it's hard to forget that you're watching Delpy, not Violette.
March 16, 2016
[I]ll-defined, creepy and not credible even within the parameters of comedy. The problem is that the story is not funny at all.
March 11, 2016
It's all meant to be funnier than it is.
March 11, 2016
For all of its non-commonplace perspectives, the movie finally feels a bit thin.
March 10, 2016
Aims to subvert the vanilla veneer of the nice French comedy.
March 10, 2016
As a character, Lolo is a conceit of indulgent parenting and never fully blooms.
