The trouble with Guillaume Canet’s French gloss on The Big Chill is that it has no underlying chill. On a beach vacation, the dozen characters haul out their pet peeves and romantic woes, but they never question how they’re living their lives. François Cluzet, as a bourgeois obsessed with the rodents in his wall, and Marion Cotillard, as a lovelorn cynic, come off as one-note — a surprise, since Canet (Tell No One) can be an ace behaviorist. Jean Dujardin is the party guy whose road accident haunts everyone. You wish the Little White Lies was about him. C
