Listening to the others sounding like a spouse in the shower makes one wonder: How bad could Barrymore be that she had to be dubbed?

Much of the film's story is half-hearted, its jokes hit or miss, and what starts out feeling genial ends up unavoidably thin.

Warmhearted, original, but not entirely successful tribute to classic Hollywood movies of the 1930s, specifically Capra's You Can't Take It With You.

The dance numbers are clever, fun and, sometimes, funky and are cleanly choreographed.

The preoccupation with rich, uninteresting, New Yorkers continues to distance his audience from his work more and more with each movie.

Woody Allen's lively musical is a whimsical journey with surprising in-tune performances from A-list stars.

Woody doing a musical? OK, it's a bit uneven, but the all-star cast holds it together. Goldie Hawn is a delight.

in Allen's sweaty palms, "Everyone" often strains itself trying to entertain. Even when the movie hits its mark, you're usually aware of how much work it took to get there.

Allen never seems to make up his mind about whether he is offering an homage to the great musicals of yesteryear or parodying that easy-to-josh genre.

Audience Reviews for Everyone Says I Love You

In 1996, Woody Allen decided to write and direct his first musical comedy, which happens to be this overwhelmingly charming piece of work.

Set across New York, Paris, and Venice, this is a look at a large group of comfortably well off people and their various romantic endeavors, both successful and otherwise. Taking a different approach compared to a lot of musicals, Allen decided to take the approach of common people just randomly breaking into song and (sometimes) dance numbers. As a result, most of the cast do their own singing, with the exception being Drew Barrymore who convinced Allen she had no musical ability whatsoever. Apparently Goldie Hawn may have been dubbed as well, supposedly because Allen told her that her singing was too good, and she should sing worse, as she sounded too good to seem like like a regular person breaking into song.

Having some musical training myself, I must say, the cast do a good job. Alan Alda and Edward Norton are pretty terrific, Tim Roth is surprisingly decent, and everyone else proves moderately passable at the very least.

And there is a star studded cast here. Aisde from who I've already mentioned, there's also Woody himself, Natasha Lyonne, Julia Roberts, Gaby Hoffmann, Natalie Portman, lukas Haas, and, very briefly, Liv Tyler and Billy Crudup. If there's anyone I missed, I'm sorry.

The performances in general are fine, pretty much what you'd expect from this kind of thing. The story and style are typical of Woody, but, having it be a musical elevates the proceedings.

The song and dance numbers are well staged and executed, especially the final dance, and, in general, this is a very funny, fun, and charming film that is really kinda hard to dislike. In the grand scheme of things, this isn't, by and large, a standout entry of Woody's filmography, but there's just something about it that I found to be really irresistible, so yeah, give it a watch.

Liked it more than I expected to. For a Woody Allen movie, this was pretty good. A lot of stars in it who were up and coming at the time like a young Natalie Portman and Natasha Lyonne (actually reminded me what a good actress she actually is). Drew Barrymore also stars, though it's not a huge role, same with Julia Roberts.
I didn't even mind the singing too much, though most of it is pretty bad in all honesty.
A few laughs and nice scenery. Couldn't really have asked for more here!

A bunch of actors you never thought you'd hear sing, get together to do a Woody Allen musical? That just sounds horrible, but I wanted to see Barrymore anyway, so I watched this movie. I don't know why, but I hate Allen's movies, they're not funny, and this is no exception. It was plain torture to watch.

Everyone Says I Love You is one of those movies you can't help but fall in love with. This slightly farcical throwback to the old time musicals is impossibly charming. Everyone...is my favorite type of Allen movie: light, funny and warm. The Woody Allen we know and love plays the Woody Allen we know and love. Other standouts are the devilish Tim Roth, the sultry Drew Barrymore and the elegant Goldie Hawn. This film is the very definition of star-studded (the cast also features Natalie Portman, Edward Norton and Julia Roberts) and features some impressive cinematography, particularly in the breathtaking Parisian sequences. Everyone Says I Love You's main selling point are musical numbers by non-singing actors, which give the proceedings more of a down-to-earth feel.
