      Wodtraveller Love this kind of comedies, jus exquisite! Real French Cinema. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Gentle, feel-good comedy. Lots of interesting characters and running gags. Loads of chuckles and some full on laughs. Really enjoyable Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/15/23 Full Review Audience Member Regular comedia francesa de situaciones . Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review Audience Member "Le sens de la fête" is French comedy done right. Hilarious dialogues, fun characters and very good choice of actors in a film that moves tirelessly without missing a beat. It is not graced by the life-affirming abandon of Toledano and Nakache's breakthrough "Intouchables" (2011) or even the follow-up "Samba" (2014), but it too has its small moments of resonance while remaining by far a refreshingly side-splitting endeavor. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review mauro l Once upon a time there was Jacques Tati with "Playtime" (1967), a poetic, polite, elegant, intelligent, delicate social satire. A commercial thud. Instead today France has this stuff here. A triumph at the box office. (Mauro Lanari) Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Tiefgang sollte man nicht erwarten, es werden auch nicht wenige Klischees bedient! Aber die Schauspieler sind hervorragend, und der Film hat viel Charme und macht gute Laune! Einen Kinobesuch auf jeden Fall wert!

      Tara Brady Irish Times Despite a fine, fun, multicultural ensemble cast, not every character and subplot here is gold, but the film breezes along so amiably that its weaker moments never grate. It's a shame that such an obvious crowd-pleaser is getting such a limited release. Rated: 4/5 Sep 10, 2018 Full Review Nigel Andrews Financial Times Think of the melting-pot mirth of mingling social strata in The Marriage of Figaro, then subtract Mozart. Rated: 3/5 Aug 29, 2018 Full Review Wenlei Ma It's a mad farce - but the fun, chuckle-worthy kind. Rated: 3/5 Aug 19, 2018 Full Review Lara Ben-Ameur Espinof An excessive length that ends in a hasty and manic way leaves this work even more in evidence as a banquet that lacks seasoning. [Full Review in Spanish] Jul 30, 2019 Full Review Andiee Paviour Nobody's Reading This But Me As the eye of the celebratory storm of a grand wedding reception in a French chateau, fed-up planner Max is tossed every which way by forces beyond his control. Rated: 3/5 Jul 7, 2019 Full Review C.J. Prince The Cinessential For the most part, it's the talent both in front of and behind the camera that keeps C'est la vie going, pulling off its pick and mix of clichés with enough skill to make it passable like comfort food.
