NYT Review: Indulging in Something on the Side in Paris

A likable skin-deep sex comedy, which tries half-heartedly to present itself as a treatise on marriage. — Stephen Holden Read the review

Attal knows that no matter how adult we feel when we say, 'I do,' marriage is all child's play: jealousy, lies and pure, unconditional love. Perplexing, but not a bad option.

Allison Benedikt, Chicago Tribune, 2005-07-28

 

Happily Ever After is never as insightful or as funny as Woody at his best. But the film has a fine-tuned approach to human behavior.

Eleanor Ringel Gillespie, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, 2005-06-30

 

A meditation on the joys and frustrations of monogamy that manages to be a diverting and funny character study at least most of the time.

Ann Hornaday, Washington Post, 2005-06-17

 

Whether any of them will live happily ever after is a question you're left pondering long after this challenging film comes to a close.

Ruthe Stein, San Francisco Chronicle, 2005-06-17

 

It's French. It's sexy. It's got a killer soundtrack.

Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post, 2005-06-16

 

A tremendously provocative date movie for couples brave enough to face each other afterward.

Ty Burr, Boston Globe, 2005-06-10

 

Like the story, the camerawork in Happily Ever After is loose, fluid and intent on discovery; it lets characters' moments together and alone unfurl easily and casually in a way that Hollywood seems to want to avoid like failure.

Carina Chocano, Los Angeles Times, 2005-05-05

 

If you ever get a chance to see Happily Ever After at any venue and in any form, drop everything and see it.

Andrew Sarris, New York Observer, 2005-05-05

 

The picture is neither comedy nor drama but an irridescent blending of the two, like the complex sky of a Turner painting.

Stephanie Zacharek, Salon.com, 2005-04-14

 

There's little you haven't seen in any number of French flicks, but then, most of them didn't have Gainsbourg.

V.A. Musetto, New York Post, 2005-04-08

 

This is terrific filmmaking.

Jami Bernard, New York Daily News, 2005-04-08

 

This is an affair to forget.

Marta Barber, Miami Herald, 2005-09-09

 

Gets bogged down in midlife-crisis cliches.

Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer, 2005-09-01

 

There's nothing much wrong with the film; my complaint is that there's nothing much right about it.

Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, 2005-07-28

 

If this is director Attal's attempt to dive into the complex world of marriages, he barely swam past the shoreline.

Mario Tarradell, Dallas Morning News, 2005-06-16

 

This look at the assorted struggles of modern hetero coupledom gives off a distinctly moldy aroma.

Ernest Hardy, L.A. Weekly, 2005-05-05

 

There's very little wit, charm or even energy on display.

Lisa Nesselson, Variety, 2005-04-14

 

None of these men, unfortunately, is a very compelling character.

Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger, 2005-04-14
