The Stroller Strategy Reviews

August 22, 2019
Combining the usual base hetero rom-com ingredients together, Michel never gets beyond simple sugar.

In what universe would a reasonable mother entrust a virtual stranger with her infant while she's in the hospital?
July 10, 2013
A lousy, middle-brow situational comedy with ... almost no laughs.

Unsophisticated, but would be fine if it either committed to an even more mannered, farcical tone or had more convincingly sketched, fully dimensional characters. It does neither.

It's a goofy, episodic trifle designed to induce swoons among the saccharine who coo every time they see a cute guy, or a baby, or a cute guy holding a baby while watching YouTube videos about how to change a diaper.

Cute to the point of blandness, tyro French helmer Clement Michel's vaguely amiable laffer scrupulously avoids all ambiguity, innovation or flashes of wit.

Lukewarm rom-com has dubious ideas about parenthood.

The result is not continuous laughter but 90 minutes in a kind of aerated existence, just credible enough to be amusing.

Writer-director Clément Michel forgot to give his characters personality, let alone charm.

A script like this has dozens of possibilities, but most have been mined out by other films

Personnaz has a nice Gallic Adam Scott thing going, and Thomas's degenerate best friend (check) gets some amusing scenes, but none of lifts The Stroller Strategy out of the well-worn ruts of its genre.

What most rankles about the film is the way that its insistence on paternal instincts as the principal signifier of male adulthood leads it to sanction the most childlike behavior of all.
