Critical response[edit]

Jordan Mintzer of The Hollywood Reporter wrote, "Nicolas Bedos and Doria Tillier co-wrote and star in this sprawling dramedy about two Frenchies who spend more than 40 years in a love-hate relationship."[3] Terry Segal of The Atlanta Jewish Times wrote, "The startling ending is gripping, and secrets are revealed. The fast-paced “Mr. & Mrs. Adelman” is interesting and holds the viewer’s attention throughout the film."[4] France Today wrote, "Panned by critics as self-indulgent, Nicolas Bedos’s directorial debut certainly revels in wrong-footing gullible viewers."[5]
