The New York Times

By Neil Genzlinger
It’s all light as a feather, with Jeremy Leven, the writer and director, landing some good multinational jokes along the way.

Movie Nation

By Roger Moore
With this “Girl” and her bicycle, the cute bits, rare laugh out loud moments, occasionally zippy lines and limply obvious farcical predicaments are never more than instantly forgettable.

Arizona Republic

By Bill Goodykoontz
Writer and director Jeremy Leven’s film is meant to be a trifle, a status which it achieves, but it’s nothing more than that.

The Dissolve

By Mike D'Angelo
The movie’s ludicrous narrative continually forces its characters to behave like cretins, and even when Leven’s dialogue is tolerable, it can barely be heard over Craig Richey’s aggressively sprightly score.

The Hollywood Reporter

By John DeFore
A rom-com whose agreeable individual elements aren't enough to sell the witless contrivance around which they revolve.

Los Angeles Times

By Sheri Linden
Jeremy Leven's attempt at old-school romantic comedy, set in a postcard-pretty tourist's vision of Paris, is more of a foolish plod than a weightless rollick.

Village Voice

Girl on a Bicycle is like Micki + Maude minus the outrage, complexity, or crack timing.

Slant Magazine

The film turns the miscommunication between cultures into an utterly lifeless romantic comedy best appreciated as a travel guide for first-time tourists to Paris.

New York Daily News

What wants to be a screwball comedy is run over by preposterous character motivation and a clunky plot.

By Odie Henderson
The word convoluted does no justice to just how poorly designed Girl on a Bicycle is. It is also stereotypical, unfunny, unromantic, absurd, sitcomish, insulting to several European ethnicities and a slave to what Roger Ebert used to call "The Idiot Plot Syndrome."
