Unexpectedly touching -- odd-couple buddy comedy. Read full review
An unlikely comedy charmer. Read full review
My Best Friend, not surprisingly, is about what it means to have friends - and not to have them, to be alone. It's about connection, about trust and vulnerability. That Leconte's little film is a mild-mannered farce, makes the heartache funny, but really, this is serious stuff. Read full review
A droll, poignant comedy enlivened by two terrific performances. Read full review
Leconte's writing is tight and nimble, and while the tests of the duo's friendship are facile, under the circumstances, they make sense. The bond between Francois and Bruno approximates the real thing; Leconte seems to be arguing that you can grow a flower from fake soil. Read full review
The film unfolds easily, with affection for the man no one likes, and at 95 minutes it doesn't overstay its welcome. Read full review
Along the way, My Best Friend offers insights into the emotional and psychological components of both friendliness and friendship. They're not synonymous, though both have value. Read full review
Mildly entertaining trifle. Read full review
For all its silliness and negligibility--a finale involving the Parisian "Who Wants to be a Millionaire?" is one of its sillier, more negligible elements--My Best Friend is an amusing reinvention of "The Odd Couple." Read full review
Not a bad film and veteran star Daniel Auteuil makes any film he inhabits an interesting place to visit. Perversely, its tissue-thin substance may even make the comedy more commercial in North America than such films of his as "Monsieur Hire" and "Ridicule." Read full review
a sweet, conventional, wet-eyed piece of French dessert
