My Dinner With Hervé

Critics Consensus

My Dinner with Hervé offers a standard narrative on celebrity and infamy, but formidable performances by Peter Dinklage and Jamie Dornan find the dimensionality and pathos of Hervé Villechaize the man.

Critic Reviews for My Dinner with Hervé

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (12) | Fresh (19) | Rotten (4)

  • Villechaize as written is a glorious part - poignant as he wrestles with the limitations placed on him by others and infuriating as he spurns the help of those trying to save him from himself - even if it was far less fun in real life.

  • My Dinner with Hervé cannot make a straight-faced claim that Villechaize was an important actor or significant cultural figure, so its own significance depends on the star's charisma, which lends the proceedings a simple poignance.

    October 23, 2018 | Full Review…
  • It's a compelling story made more poignant by the fact that it's told by Dinklage, a performer who seems to be the exact opposite of Villechaize.

  • What's left are two dudes with varying degrees of moral disrepair shouting at each other across the Hollywood Hills. That's not enough to hold up an entire feature, or even a good dinner conversation.

  • But Dinklage, like Dornan, manages to convey a fully dimensional person despite the skipping of narrative steps. He is a remarkable actor.

    October 22, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Dinklage excels in a very difficult role to pull off while Dornan keeps pace as his reluctant Boswell. Their love story, is both an entertaining romp and a cautionary tale.
