The grinding noises you hear are the gears of this labored French comedy straining to keep a ridiculously convoluted narrative moving along.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
February 9, 2006
A limp, smirky lark.
January 15, 2005
The movie, written and directed by Andrew Litvack, a protégé of Ismail Merchant and James Ivory, strains to be the ne plus ultra of arch, hyper-sophisticated fun, but the laughs are few.

An arch, clumsy effort...not only poorly written but ineptly staged... Mercy!

Merci Docteur Rey, which occasionally works as a passable farce, stoops to the sight gag of vomit.

While the cast of Merci Docteur Rey gives it a good shot, this romp stumbles a bit.

It's as if Litvack tossed all these bad gags, multiple storylines and kooky characters into a blender and hit puree.

September 25, 2004
What is all too apparent on the screen is a general pointless ineptitude, particularly dire in circumstances which require both material and handling to be done with the most effervescent of skill.

Tries too hard to be madcap.

September 17, 2004
In this comedy of murder, there is exactly one laugh, involving a dress and wallpaper, which is one more than there is of a real human moment or emotion.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
September 17, 2004
There's much ado about very little in this flimsy, fallible Gallic comedy/melodrama which confounds with its complex, voyeuristic incongruity.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
September 15, 2004
This is less a coming-out tale than a showcase for late-middle- aged hysterical divas in flowing caftans to yell, scream and ride roughshod over the young homosexuals who are nominally the movie's center.
September 14, 2004
With Yank Andrew Litvack pinch-hitting for producers Ismail Merchant and James Ivory, Merci is free of much of that M-I pomposity, replacing it with an unnerving drollness.
September 10, 2004
It comes off as forced wackiness of the worst kind, at once cloddish and faux-sophisticated.
September 2, 2004
Lacks the sophistication it needs to be truly effective, hopelessly lost in its unfunny gags and weak plotting.
Full Review | Original Score: D+
