A romantic comedy that is not romantic nor funny; instead, it is silly and uninteresting in the same proportion - and not even an adorable cameo by Woody Allen himself is able to lift this movie from the mere ordinary.

Really nice, relaxing, sweet comedy. Woody Allen fans will find a lot of allegories to his movies. The mixture of Allen's quotations from various movies to the story, making a real conversation between Alice and Woody is hilarious. And so many scenes almost taken out from his movies, e.g. when Alice's parents sneak into her sisters' apartment - it's "Manhattan Murder Mystery"... Alice's mom even looks a bit like Diane Keaton there :) For me very fresh! Good I didn't check reviews here...

This is a really nice light hearted film focusing on Alice (Alice Taglioni, The Pink Panther) an odd young woman obsessed with Woody Allen. Alice is quirky and funny which compensates for the rather generic romantic comedy plot. Much of the film is a homage to Woody Allen and his films, even down to Alice's reflections talking to her poster of Woody Allen. Overall it's a sweet and funny film, not too serious or deep.

Un mal tributo a Woody Allen, queriendo imitar sus formas, pero careciendo completamente de la lucidez que le hubiera impreso uno de los mejores directores de la historia del cine.

This is a damn easy film to watch - partly because it is a very pretty little film. The last scenes are particularly gorgeous.

Oh, so they made a film about me.

It's a rather silly whimsical tale that rom-com fanatics will probably admire, and die-hard Woody Allen fans will neglect. Paris Manhattan tries to restore the 80's-Allen charm, but ultimately fails to draw the viewers attention. With some cheap tricks, like adding some of the memorable quotes from the famous director's films, it doesn't achieve a respectable comedic level, and becomes to derivative to be laughable. The characters are at least nerve-racking, and their affairs become ridiculous after only a few minutes. The subtle French feel is the only thing that may actually be accounted for as a plus. It's a good movie for a rainy day on the couch, but nothing more really.

une femme trop rÍveuse et un homme trop cynique, sympa. avec en plus, le vrai Woody Allen en guest

A film about a Woody Allen obsessive will surely appeal to all the Woody Allen obsessives out there... and it should. A chemist talks to him at night and eventually he actually appears in her life. This is a real charmer and makes a great date movie for all ages!
