Ephemeral, Woody Allen. Only for his fans.

Filled with laughs and missed potential for lots more, the film leaves us happy but maybe wishing for something bigger.

Com seu habitual humor auto-depreciativo e seu imenso talento para a comédia física, Allen cria um filme divertido, mas que jamais se equipara aos seus grandes trabalhos.

Hollywood Ending, while not quite as lousy as last year's The Curse of the Jade Scorpion, is still fairly mediocre...

...Even if this isn't Woody's best, it provides generally solid entertainment, which is something of a rarity these days from Tinseltown.

Woody Allen's latest is an ambling, broad comedy about all there is to love -- and hate -- about the movie biz.

Allen se atreve a atacar, a atacarse y nos ofrece gags que van de la sonrisa a la risa de larga duración

... those of us who favor the director's more "pretentious" films can't help but be struck by what appears to be a failure of nerve

The premise may be outrageous, but the film is full of witty lines, delightful scenes and sharp performances.

His films remain entertainment akin to watching a stand-up act: disposable stories, great sense of humor, one-liners that I quote incessantly for months.

As his conclusion, Allen plays into the ironic comedy he intends with his title, Hollywood Ending, and it comes as a jolly repartee to his American critics.

Fun in a way that brings a sly smile to your face.

It just misses being in the pantheon of Allen's great works. And it's not easy pinpointing exactly why.

Woody Allen pokes fun at the industry, and at himself - but it's funny when he says it.

Hollywood Ending is not show-stoppingly hilarious, but scathingly witty nonetheless.

Allen can do better, and has done better, but perhaps this is as good as he does anymore.
