Critic Reviews for Green Card

All Critics (30) | Top Critics (11)

[A]n effortlessly engaging love story whose ace in the hole is the almost indecent magnetism of Gerard Depardieu.

January 23, 2019 | Full Review…

The movie is just pleasing enough to make you wish there were more to it.

September 7, 2011 | Rating: B | Full Review…

Although a thin premise endangers its credibility at times, Green Card is a genial, nicely played romance.

March 26, 2009 | Full Review…

In terms of the genre's conventions, Weir likens this film to 'a light meal'. It's one to savour.

Top Critic

For "Green Card" seems much more enjoyable on a second viewing, after the ghost of Julia Roberts in Beverly Hills had been banished.

May 20, 2003 | Full Review…

Depardieu's charm recognizes no language barriers, and MacDowell, the revelation of sex, lies, and videotape, proves a fine, sexy foil.

Audience Reviews for Green Card


I'm in-between with this movie. While I liked the story and there were some scenes that were brilliant, there lacked a certain something in this film. That being said, I certainly think it's recommendable to rom-com lovers.
