Critic Consensus: My Dinner with Hervé offers a standard narrative on celebrity and infamy, but formidable performances by Peter Dinklage and Jamie Dornan find the dimensionality and pathos of Hervé Villechaize the man.

Critic Reviews for My Dinner with Hervé
Villechaize as written is a glorious part - poignant as he wrestles with the limitations placed on him by others and infuriating as he spurns the help of those trying to save him from himself - even if it was far less fun in real life.
Dinklage is superb, not just peeling back Villechaize layer by layer, but conveying simultaneously a man who was manipulative and aggressive...but also lonely and vulnerable and plain sad.
My Dinner with Hervé cannot make a straight-faced claim that Villechaize was an important actor or significant cultural figure, so its own significance depends on the star's charisma, which lends the proceedings a simple poignance.
It's a compelling story made more poignant by the fact that it's told by Dinklage, a performer who seems to be the exact opposite of Villechaize.
What's left are two dudes with varying degrees of moral disrepair shouting at each other across the Hollywood Hills. That's not enough to hold up an entire feature, or even a good dinner conversation.
