Dujardin and Efira are both charming and beautiful, and the film glistens in its breezy cobblestoned scenery.
Potentially great chemistry and good performances are largely wasted in this gimmicky rom-com, in which Jean Dujardin plays a four-foot-five Romeo seeking to woo a regular-sized woman.
The message would be more convincing if they'd cast a smaller actor instead of using distracting CG effects.
It would be easy to pick on Up for Love as an offensive movie, but in reality, it's just useless. It's a stupid film with a stupid premise done stupidly.
The script eschews farcical predicaments, but merely by casting Dujardin, an actor of regular height, instead of someone who matches Alexandre's dimensions, the film has an exploitative edge that it can never completely shake.
Maybe a 30-minute television show is the best format to explore the premise. It's a bit thin for a movie that runs 90-plus minutes, though. But the appealing leads do their best with the parts they are given.
The film flirts with near-offensive gags and attitudes, but there's inventive use of forced perspective, even if the focus should be more on Diane changing hers.
offers casual, light-hearted laughs
Convenience, froth: both offer omens of things to come.
The nagging feeling remains that for a film that appears to position itself as a comedic assault on political correctness, it pulls too many punches.
Two charming lead performances are wasted in this misconceived comedic romcom whose one-joke premise quickly wears thin and is adversely tainted by the wrong tone
A comedy that could have been much more efficient and in which both characters are wasted. [Full review in Spanish]
