If the movie were all comedy, it might work better. But it has an ambition to say something about its subjects, but not a willingness.

Attal sets us up to expect some kind of inside look at the predicament posed by the title and premise of his movie. On that basis, My Wife Is an Actress, blandly pleasant as it is, is a bit of a cheat.

...the picture's cleverness is ironically muted by the very people who are intended to make it shine.

Attal pushes too hard to make this a comedy or serious drama. He seems to want both, but succeeds in making neither.

Attal's hang-ups surrounding infidelity are so old-fashioned and, dare I say, outdated, it's a wonder that he couldn't have brought something fresher to the proceedings simply by accident.

[Yvan] mugs his way through any number of low-comic situations ... leaving Charlotte -- and this critic -- ever more exasperated and unsure about whether it's going to be worth hanging in for the long haul.

The situation and humor are sitcom quality at best.

It's the kind of movie that ends up festooning U.S. art house screens for no reason other than the fact that it's in French (well, mostly) with English subtitles and is magically 'significant' because of that.

A frothy valentine to moviemaking and romance that doesn't quite achieve its intended impact, despite the compelling presence of the central trio.

The three leads produce adequate performances, but what's missing from this material is any depth of feeling.

Gainsbourg is virtually incidental to her mate's screeching navel-serenade, which maintains a stranglehold on the declarative first-person mode of its title.
July 11, 2002
Yvan Attal may be happily entangled in his fair Charlotte's web, but he doesn't manage to snare us.
July 12, 2002
[Attal's] abrasive obnoxiousness undermines the film's generally light tone, and seriously deflects sympathy away from his character's dilemma.

Feels canned and empty.

Not so much farcical as sour.

The film title My Wife Is an Actress should be extended to finish with . . . and I'm a Major Annoyance.

July 27, 2002
Apparently writer-director Attal thought he need only cast himself and his movie-star wife sitting around in their drawers to justify a film.
August 16, 2002
This French marriage comedy is a not-so -entertaining offering from real-life married couple actor-director Yvan Attal and actress Charlotte Gainsbourg, daughter of French crooner Serge Gainsbourg.

Little more than a frothy vanity project.
