Under the Eiffel Tower Reviews

February 27, 2019
Under the Eiffel Tower just doesn't have the spirit that a rom-com needs.
February 20, 2019
Uneven midlife-crisis dramedy has drinking, language.
February 11, 2019
While Under the Eiffel Tower hits every genre cliche in the book, the film is able to overcome this due to the chemistry betweenMatt Walsh and Judith Godrche.

A familiar setting yields a modestly fresh romantic comedy that finds some character-driven charm when its clumsy narrative contrivances stay out of the way.

The film is light and follows a distinct formula, but Walsh is incredibly charming, and shares a potent chemistry with Godrèche.

Like many of the countless number of glasses of wine consumed by the characters throughout, it goes down easy and leaves a pleasant, if ultimately short-lived, afterglow.

There's no reason for you to see Under the Eiffel Tower unless you enjoy being tortured for 87 minutes.

Under the Eiffel Tower is sandwiched so tightly between a prologue that doesn't care and an epilogue too worn out to stick the landing that it almost doesn't get to be a movie at all.

...a small-scale setup that's employed largely to almost-passable-yet-primarily-forgettable effect...

The film is yet another ode to the restorative magic of wine country sunshine, which apparently also has the power to expose the story's egregious midlife-crisis clichés.

Has a problem with likeability, which becomes an issue with a movie that's hoping to make a warm impression on viewers.
February 6, 2019
Under the Eiffel Tower works better as comedy than drama, and feels more like fantasy than romance. But it also has a sweetness that's impossible to entirely resist.
February 6, 2019
Matt Walsh does his best to keep the film afloat. He actually fares even better in the more dramatic moments than the comedic ones.
February 6, 2019
It doesn't play things too safe, nor does it get too creative, but there's something undeniably genuine about the characterizations and the core narrative that can't be dismissed.

It's tough to root for the pair when neither of them experiences genuine hardship. In the end, all dramatic conflict here is sunny and soporific.
