Chicago Tribune

By Allison Benedikt
With husband and wife starring, you can't help but wonder which details here are autobiographical. No matter: This is obviously a deeply personal work for Attal, whose comic timing and passion can only serve him well both on screen and off.

By Jami Bernard
Gives moviegoers a funny, observant, evanescent approach to the mysteries of human desire.

New York Post

You need a scorecard to keep track of who's bedding whom in Happily Ever After, a tres French take on sex and love, in that order.

Philadelphia Inquirer

By Steven Rea
Where My Wife was offbeat and original, Happily Ever After gets bogged down in midlife-crisis cliches.

Austin Chronicle

By Marrit Ingman
The movie is kind of a mess – all over the place tonally, hastily paced, and overly reliant on the ostensible truisms of romantic comedy.

TV Guide

By Maitland McDonagh
Attal's characters are one-note position statements, which forces the unsubtle soundtrack - mostly American pop songs that range from the Velvet Underground's "Sunday Morning" to Radiohead's "Creep" - to bear the brunt of clarifying their thoughts and feelings. Without it, you'd be entirely in the dark.

Chicago Sun-Times

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