  • Summary: With Paris as the backdrop and a plot reminiscent of Agatha Christie at her best, this is a whimsical homage to film and celebrity. (Regent Releasing)

    With a plot laden with mistaken identities, voyeurism, marijuana-laced brownies and even a cameo by Vanessa Redgrave playing herself, "Merci" tries too hard to be madcap.
  2. An elegant Merchant Ivory production, it is too slight and perhaps too precious. But it will be a witty pleasure for admirers of its grande dames: Dianne Wiest, Jane Birkin and Bulle Ogier.
  3. Strains to be the ne plus ultra of arch, hyper-sophisticated fun, but the laughs are few.

    Litvack is lazy with his jokes, characterizations, motives, and plotting.
  5. 25
    Brainless and pointless.
  6. Andrew Litvack, whose inability to direct is outweighed only by his inability to write anything remotely witty, enlightening, or engaging. Calling this a farce would be, well, a farce.

    A disastrous stab at contemporary farce.
