  • Summary: Two of France's most celebrated actors, Daniel Auteuil ("The Closet," "Girl on the Bridge") and José Garcia ("Trouble Everyday," "Jet Set"), team up in a romantic comedy that begs the question: can it actually be bad to be a Good Samaritan? [Paramount Classics]

  1. This delightfully spirited film is perfectly cast, and it's hard to imagine how Daniel Auteuil, José Garcia and Sandrine Kiberlain could possibly improve upon their irresistible, multifaceted portrayals.
  2. The humor is all over the place, veering from light to dark and from broad to subtle -- as if an "I Love Lucy" episode had been retooled by Woody Allen.

    Après Vous arranges for a normal guy to get stuck with a blithering wreck. But whenever things threaten to get really silly, it pulls back.

    The movie is largely set in a busy Paris restaurant, and, not surprisingly, the food looks terrific. You may come out hungry for poached sea bass and a little starved for drama.

    Praised be the gods that this rom-com is French. If not, we'd be haunted by visions of a Focker-ish Dustin Hoffman rescuing a suicidal Tony Shalhoub then orchestrating the TV germophobe's reunification with ex Lisa Kudrow. Vive la France!
  6. Had it had the concision and symmetry of a classic French farce, Après Vous could have been an irresistible laugh machine.
  7. Proves an absolute chore to sit through.
