    Russian Dolls is itself a delightful mini-trip to Europe. Its overly cute bits are like cinematic tourist traps, but it's the beauty that stays with you.
  2. Russian Dolls never resorts to sitcom moments as it explores the transformation of friendship into love. All the characters here are believably appealing and refreshingly three-dimensional, and the situations they find themselves in have the ring of truth. You leave this film wanting to know these people, wanting the best for them.
  3. Russian Dolls isn't quite the gem that its precursor was. It rambles. It's less of an ensemble effort. There's more of Xavier's moping self-centeredness. But Duris is terrific as the confused cusp-of-30 protagonist, and the rest of the cast is bright and beaming.
  4. Another highly entertaining portrait of attractive young Europeans looking for personal and professional fulfillment amidst gorgeous locations.
  5. Meandering, overlong digital soap opera.

    For all its self-conscious pizzazz, this is irresistibly entertaining.
  7. The smarter way to make this movie would have been to edit out everything extraneous to the story of Xavier and Wendy. They're the soul and heart of the movie, while everything else is pretty much dead weight.

    It's filmed in a very interesting way, the characters make you care about them, and there are some damn good looking women in this It's filmed in a very interesting way, the characters make you care about them, and there are some damn good looking women in this movie! It speaks to every person struggling to succeed in love and career. Or even struggling to define what success in those areas really means. Great movie! Expand

    A sometimes amusing film that screams "I'm hip!".

    Dreadful. The main character is hateful and empathy with anyone in the film is impossible. The director/screenwriters seem not to care what Dreadful. The main character is hateful and empathy with anyone in the film is impossible. The director/screenwriters seem not to care what the audience thinks. Perhaps ironically the protagonist tries to avoid cliches while all along the whole film is one overwhelming cliche. About half way through you stop caring whether the ending will be happy or sad, you just hope that it will be soon. Expand
