The film flirts with near-offensive gags and attitudes, but there’s inventive use of forced perspective, even if the focus should be more on Diane changing hers.

What are critics saying?
There is a message here about celebrating differences, which would be a bit more convincing if they’d cast a smaller actor in the role – instead of using distracting CG effects on Dujardin.
An otherwise mundane rom-com that doesn’t know how to handle its one point-of-difference; and even that isn’t as much of a big deal as its writers think it is.
Up for Love lacks tact and substance but its leads make it a watchable, albeit bite-size, jaunt.
It’s more silly than funny, and audiences can be forgiven for wondering if an actor of restricted growth should have been cast.
