Merci Docteur Rey Reviews

February 9, 2006
A limp, smirky lark.
January 15, 2005
The movie, written and directed by Andrew Litvack, a protg of Ismail Merchant and James Ivory, strains to be the ne plus ultra of arch, hyper-sophisticated fun, but the laughs are few.

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

Brainless and pointless.

Tries too hard to be madcap.

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.

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.

It comes off as forced wackiness of the worst kind, at once cloddish and faux-sophisticated.

The efforts of an experienced cast ... can't invigorate the tedious screenplay or distract from the stilted direction.
