A satisfying contraption of twists, missteps, and blithe repartee that produces old-fashioned, honestly earned guffaws. Read full review
Francis Veber's latest offering, remains faithful to the formula -- broad farce leavened with witty dialogue -- that has made him France's most bankable comedy writer-director and a surefire hit with international audiences. Read full review
An old-fashioned joy. Read full review
An enjoyable farce, with lots of laughs and a strong cast. At 80 minutes long, it's that rare case of a short film that should have been longer. Read full review
When Veber is on form there's no one better. And when he's not, well, give The Valet a look anyway -- there's still much to admire. Read full review
As always in Veber's films, the predictability is part of the fun. Read full review
Its punchline, imagining the worst that could happen to Auteuil's slimy exec, is weak and kind of dumb, but the rest of the film is genial, appealing, and brisk. Read full review
Veber's early stage training serves him well both as an adapter (he wrote the "La Cage aux Folles" screenplay) and as a maker of originals though, truth be told, The Valet isn't especially original. Read full review
The new movie is tart and weightless, and it entertains without leaving a mark. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but at 85 minutes, The Valet at times feels like a blueprint for a farce rather than the farce itself. Read full review

wacky slapstick, somewhat witty dialogue
