It's not a bad film -- it just could have been a lot better.

It's far too ponderous. Still, it's not wholly terrible, and that's not something you can say about Allen's films very often these days.

A trifle filled with nostalgia and fantasy touristy fare.

Pure Woody Allen. Which is not to say great or even good Woody, but a distillation of the filmmaker's passions and crotchets, and of his tendency to pass draconian judgment on characters the audience is not supposed to like.

Minor ... a one-sided infatuation that always looks fancy, thanks to Darius Khondji's exquisite Parisian cinematography, but isn't as fanciful as its dreamy foundation suggests.

Let's face it, Woody Allen makes some bad movies or at least only slightly entertaining movies. He might have been great in the past but that day has long gone.

Sadly, this movie made me want to go back in time to a glorious period in New York City in the 1970s and '80s when a filmmaker named Woody Allen ruled the movie world.

The opening and closing moments of "Midnight in Paris" are visually resplendent. The movie in the middle gets in the way.

As cinematic froth, Midnight in Paris passes the time prettily enough. But neither its characters nor its sense of place really stands up in the light of day.

Maybe if I paid more attention in high school English I'd get it.

The groupie-like celebration of Allen's doubled-up cultural insecurity and ambition represents a global degradation of culture standards.

A frail conceit that Allen fills out with humor that's surprisingly obvious and broad...a mildly diverting fantasy, executed without much style.

Woody Allen attracts promising players and does nothing with them.

The blend of charm, magic, wit, and characterization come together to make this an engaging and intellectually stimulating experience. This is a great film and one of the best of the year thus far.

The fact that Allen never explains how Bender bends time is a wise choice, there's no bogging down of the narrative which allows the flick to keep skipping along at a effervescent pace.

Filled with light-hearted fancy and a dazzling cast, Woody Allen's latest film is a magical stroll through a magnificent city

It's an entertaining and sometimes hilarious film that belongs squarely in Allen's "hit" column.
