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)

  • To see Dinklage bring such humanity and pathos to such a complexly unhappy character was the most profound aspect of the film.

    February 28, 2019 | Full Review…
  • This fine HBO-produced biopic of the late Herve Villechaize has been a passion project for Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage for several years.

    October 31, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • 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.

  • Dinklage is superb, not just peeling back Villechaize layer by layer, but conveying simultaneously a man who was manipulative and aggressive...but also lonely and vulnerable and plain sad.

    October 29, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Gervasi steers clear of farcical intent, which surprises, instead trying to find the strangeness and sincerity in this meeting of broken men.

    October 25, 2018 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…
  • 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.
