“..winning performances grace this entertaining but overlong Big Chill-esque dramedy..”
by Michael Rechtshaffen [Hollywood Reporter]
“..rather than crafting a French film that will appeal to Americans, Canet has made one that's altogether too Hollywood to stand out in stateside cinemas..”
by Mark Jenkins [NPR]
4 of 5

“..it's overlong, but with its gorgeous cast, irreverent humour and beautifully drawn characters, this smart comedy-drama is the kind of movie Couples Retreat and Grown Ups should have been..”
by Anna Smith [Empire Online]
“..it doesn't peer very deeply into the souls of these spoiled, marginally sympathetic narcissists, whose ties to one another seem superficial, its commercial future in America seems problematic..”
by Stephen Holden [NY Times]
2.5 of 4

“..is such a blatant rip-off of a far better American movie that it could have been called "Le Big Chill"..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]
“..after the narrative precision required for "Tell No One," Canet might have welcomed a looser approach. But two and a half hours is an absurdly bloated running time for such a trifle. It's not a trip to remember..”
by Sheri Linden [LA Times]
3 of 4

“.."Little White Lies" will be just as charmed as it was..”
by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger]

THE PERFECT WAVE :

“.."The Perfect Wave" is aimed at a certain audience that will appreciate its message and let slide its deficiencies..”
by Mary Houlihan [Chicago Sun-Times]

AFFLUENZA :

“..nothing is revealing or surprising in this horse-beating tale of spiritual poverty among the extremely wealthy..”
by Chris Klimek [The Dissolve]

RAGE :

“..but this one is funless and lackluster, a grinding mess of pulp cliches with dull characters, perfunctory violence and dim plotting..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]

ROAD TO PALOMA :

“..this film is numbingly dull, an outlaw-on-the-run saga as laconic and slow-moving as its fierce, hirsute protagonist..”
by Sam Weisberg [Village Voice]

LAND HO! :

“..the characters reorder their lives that makes Land Ho! seem both a little slight and a little precious..”
by Ben Kenigsberg [AV Club]

BOYHOOD :

“..Boyhood is a masterpiece..”
by Simon Reynolds [Digital Spy]

PLANES: FIRE & RESCUE :

“..a dramatic improvement over the original, introducing thrilling action sequences backed by actual stakes and an unexpected emotional dimension, all on top of upgraded animation and a greater emphasis on character..”
by Drew Taylor [The Playlist]

SCHOOL DANCE :

“..this witless comedy is equal opportunity offensive..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]

SUCH GOOD PEOPLE :

“..it seems a shame that so much talent should be poured into this , but with such an embarrassingly lame script like this, they really stood no chance at all..”
by Roger Walker-Dack [Queertiques.com]
