Patrice Leconte has taken a story about male friendship, in all its posturing and potential vulnerability, and turned it into a light, smart, crowd-pleasing comedy.
December 18, 2007
Leconte has crafted an at once thoughtful, engaging, lighthearted, and melancholic entertainment about loneliness and friendship

This is a movie that sneaks up on you and grabs your heart before you know it. I would want to watch it with my best friend.
November 16, 2007
French though it may be, My Best Friend effectively addresses what is a universal human condition.
November 7, 2007
It isn't always believable, but it is entertaining and funny, with an edge to it.

A wonderful, rare film that portrays one of the most under-represented but universal human neuroses: the desire for friendship or platonic love.
October 10, 2007
Few films so directly address the question of friendship, the nature of friendship, and, most of all, the illusion that our acquaintances and our friends are the same thing.

Daniel Auteuil is reliable as usual.

You might well find it very silly, but it grew on me, and it's certainly based on an interesting premise.
September 22, 2007
Auteuil and Boon's appealing performances keep the film engaging throughout, but it's easy to pine for a dark, challenging film with this premise, pitched more toward a harrowing emotional reckoning than this film's ambiguous but inevitable happy ending.
September 22, 2007
If sex, gangsters, and killing Nazis are three of the most enlivening topics in the movies, then let us count friendship as one of the most tiresome, right up there with grooming horses and sharing for sheer thrills.
September 22, 2007
This is yet another demonstration of the staggering versatility of Auteuil, surely the finest French actor of his generation.
September 22, 2007
It's better when it's threatening, but Leconte knows his audience.
September 22, 2007
One looks to Leconte for some of the finest, most sophisticated and compassionate filmmaking coming out of France, not for a situation comedy.
September 22, 2007
Patrice Leconte's latest is a little light and a little telegraphed, but still quite enjoyable.
September 22, 2007
My Best Friend's heart is in the right place, but its grasp on its characters isn't, well, the best.
