    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    The first half of My Worst Nightmare contains some of the best comedy and the biggest laughs of the season, and the second half ... eh. show more

    Michael Phillips Chicago Tribune

    Huppert, Poelvoorde and Dussullier are experts all. show more

    Kyle Smith New York Post

    No one loves a broad comedy like the French, but Gallic touches of restraint tend to keep such light entertainment pleasing rather than blundering. show more

    Diego Costa Slant Magazine

    The hilarity of the film creeps up slowly and from every angle, not through the facile immediacy of short-lived laughter. show more

    Wesley Morris Boston Globe

    Huppert's character, who's a tornado of demands at work, is almost as obnoxious as Poel-voorde's. She just not as willfully disgusting. He chews up all the scenery with his thick Belgian accent and splaying limbs and general cartoonishness. show more

    David Fear Time Out New York

    Huppert fans have long been tolerant of her hit-and-miss filmography, and while her double act with the rubber-faced Poelvoorde provides a few well-played scenes-two words: horsey rides-it's not enough to liven up a trite story of loosening up. show more

    Its tepid satire of art world pretensions culminates with a visual dirty joke that is mildly amusing but still not worth the wait. show more
