    New York Post - by Lou Lumenick
    If I Were You has more than its share of laughs, but director Joan Carr-Wiggin needed to cut half an hour to make this fly without interest flagging. She had the exact same problem with her last movie, “A Previous Engagement.’’ more

    Slant Magazine - by Nick Schager
    A wannabe French-style infidelity farce that keeps indulging in unnecessary bathos and subplots. more

    Time Out New York - by Andrew Schenker
    It’s a complex geometry that’s mined for some interesting perspectives on romantic fulfillment, but the film’s comic sense (exemplified by a drunken Harden acting inappropriately) is slack and its dramatic conclusion unfulfilling. more

    Los Angeles Times - by Robert Abele
    This is Nancy Meyers territory, but leaden with passé observations about lovelorn women...and hardly ebullient as either oddball-pair comedy or housewife-revenge fantasy. more

    New York Daily News - by Joe Neumaier
    Hardworking Oscar winner Harden and beguiling Spanish star Watling do nothing for this haphazard film, which belatedly decides it wants to be a stage satire as the women lark into a ridiculous avant-garde production of “MacBeth.” Bloody awful. more
