If you really like French ambience, this film is drowning in it. But don't expect Amelie or Chocolat. This film is far less witty, charming and moving than those films, no matter how desperately it tries to emulate them.

In order for the script to crackle and the heart to move, you need to suspend more disbelief that proves possible here.

The tone is unashamedly sentimental, and the performances are too often played for laughs, so the film ends up feeling rather thin and inconsequential

Carré and Poelvoorde are nice and cute in their scenes together, but just as it seems it is going to make some concessions in its second act, it is already over.

Romantics Anonymous is about emotional-cripples who find love in one another's awkward embrace. They're cutesy. They're clumsy. They're also chocolatiers. Seriously, abandon hate, all ye who enter here.

So much is conveyed in what isn't said: the half-finished words, the broken syllables, the inarticulate noises, even the silences.

Whilst I hoped there would be a little more substance, I still found myself caught up in the charm of this farce.

Boy meets girl. Boy likes girl. Girl faints and boy jumps out the bathroom window.

The script is witty, the chemistry just right, and the overall effect so sweet it's a little like eating too much chocolate.

A typically anodyne rom-com given a certain poignant piquancy by the paralyzing shyness of its romantic leads.

A sugar-coated change of tack from an underrated filmmaker. Won't win Améris many new fans, though.

Romantics Anonymous is a delightfully sweet comedy where love, chocolate and social anxiety blend to make a deliciously offbeat treat.

As sweet as chocolate that's spiced with bitterness of varying degrees, this whimsical charmer about two eccentrics weighed down by anxiety, is a delight

Flighty, feather-light French romantic comedy...A very pleasant treat.

An adorable, quirky chocolatier looking for love? One guess which country this heavily whimsical comedy hails from.

Améris's recipe here calls for everything in moderation, resulting in a movie that never threatens to offend nor, particularly, to delight, though it does offer a good view on a modestly charming actors' duet.

It'll be too light and frothy for some tastes, but it's bound to leave you with a warm glow.
