  • Summary: Change of Plans (Le Code a Changé) is a delicious comedy of manners. The film centers around a summer dinner party where ten acquaintances, each attempting to mask their own personal troubles, come together for an evening of food, wine and friendship. It's not long before the couples begin revealing their dissatisfaction with their partners and it becomes obvious that they are planning or having affairs. (IFC Films) Expand

    By the time this lightly entertaining look at life's emotional crises ends, even the characters you didn't think were sympathetic will have won you over.
  2. This film isn't boring - it's not scintillating or spellbinding, either, just pleasantly honest and moderately interesting throughout.

    Change of Plans may not be earth-shattering cinema, but it's masterfully structured and edited (by Sylvie Landra) with a first-rate cast.
  4. A comedy of manners in need of Ritalin.
  5. The next time you're invited to a French dinner party, you might want to give it a pass, if the tedious proceedings in Change of Plans are any indication.
  6. 50
    The acting by Seigner, Marina Hands, Karin Viard, Patrick Bruel and other French notables is first-rate, although their characters and what they have to say are trite.
  7. 40
    At the very least, this mush pot reminds us that countries other than ours also produce melodramatic mediocrities.
