  • This is frivolous verbal jousting elevated to a blood sport by people who are much more resilient than they let on.

  • What starts as an entertaining expos of Parisian society eventually becomes exhausting.

    December 12, 2013 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Frequently delightful, full of ribald humor and compelling, intelligent debate.

  • The film manages to avoid feeling like a play on film, but its likeness to other, superior films dealing with similar familial unrest around the dinner table lends it a rather tired air.

    August 29, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Adapting their own material, directors Matthieu Delaporte and Alexandre de la Patelliere keep it all moving at breakneck speed while adding necessary moments of repose, and the actors ... give it their all.

Audience Reviews for What's In A Name?

  • Mar 27, 2012
    Even funnier than Roman Polanski's Carnage, this smart French comedy (also adapted from a play) is lifted by a very sharp cast and has a dynamic direction that knows how to maintain a good pace, focusing mostly on a well-written dialogue that is so hilarious.
