This is one of those goofball romcoms where crazy things just keep on happening. Its wackiness drives you nuts.

The couple's chemistry is persuasive, especially in the crucial second half, and Chaumeil again demonstrates a keen eye for balancing character and situational comedy against a glamorous backdrop.

Uneven follow-up to Heartbreaker offers a similar pitch but significantly less laughs.

Some French humour still eludes me, and A Perfect Plan is one of those rom-coms that irritates more than amuses.

Times (UK)

People do screwy things in screwball comedies - and we're tickled when the filmmakers pull off the daftness with panache. Yet it's hard to raise a smile from the laboriously contrived kookiness of Diane Kruger and Dany Boon's wildly mismatched couple.

There's nothing perfect or planned about Diane Kruger's madcap scheme in this belatedly released 2012 Gallic romcom.

Audience Reviews for A Perfect Plan (Un plan parfait)

Cute French farce comedy. The first half is better than the second and it's a little too long, but mostly I enjoyed this. A few laughs and some interesting background to the movie.

Wry French humour, not totally overboard, showcasing the frivolity of marriage for some, until the realization of true love hits. The escapades to Copenhagen, Nairobi and Kilimanjaro were fun.
