What are the Critics saying about ‘Un plan parfait‘?
Kate Muir (Times – UK)
Some French humour still eludes me, and A Perfect Plan is one of those rom-coms that irritates more than amuses.
Peter Bradshaw (Guardian)
None of the obvious plotholes would matter if it was in any way romantic or funny. Oh well.
Sophie Monks Kaufman (Little White Lies)
Diane Kruger’s looks are fetishised in this laboured and soft-headed farce about beauty and a family curse.
Boyd van Hoeij (Variety)
The couple’s chemistry is persuasive, especially in the crucial second half. Chaumeil again demonstrates a keen eye for balancing character and situational comedy against a glamorous backdrop.
Jordan Mintzer (Hollywood Reporter)
Uneven follow-up to Heartbreaker offers a similar pitch but significantly less laughs
