Pleasant enough but not exactly compelling.

The real tragedy of this film is that, when all is said and done, it's just not funny.

The only reason to see this film is for the acting.

The atmosphere, combined with Sweet and Lowdown's entertaining momentum and zippy jazz score, makes it easy for you to get swept away for 90 minutes of great jazz and good fun.

The filmā(TM)s most striking aspect -- aside from Pennā(TM)s generous performance -- are the disagreements among these interviewees.

Emmet Ray is a fictional character, but so convincing in Woody Allen's Sweet and Lowdown that he seems like a real chapter of jazz history we somehow overlooked.

Sweet and Lowdown is undeniably pleasant, but British actress Samantha Morton quietly explodes it: Her performance is like nothing I've seen in recent years.

Film Journal International

Probes a darker vein than many a Woody Allen movie, but it's also a richly comic piece which can join the ranks of this filmmaker's very best work.

The bubbly lightness of the music and the giddy fun of Allen's humor give Sweet and Lowdown the gloss of light comedy.

A likable, lively little ditty -- one theme, some clever variations -- that never wears out its welcome.

It is a fictional docudrama that smacks of Woody's playfulness and love for jazz...
