Baldwin, Cruz and Davis shine in a farce that overstretches itself into bellylaugh hits, but also some satirical misses.

Four trivial stories, forced laughs: don't expect much more from Allen's latest postcard from Europe.

After the cinematic glory Woody Allen bestowed upon Paris, to be given this kind of treatment is akin to being served Steak-umms instead of filet mignon.

...the movie, which admittedly does start out with some promise, ultimately becomes just as aimless and tedious as such recent Allen failures as Whatever Works and You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger.

There's enough of Woody's familiar shticks to please his regular audience.

Dear Woody, I will always be there for you. Stop punishing me for my loyalty.

Even a weak Woody Allen script is better than so many other less witty projects. 'To Rome With Love' is proof of that.

Now, if Baldwin had been cast as the paparazzi-plagued Benigni character, we might have had something.

The disjointed stories feel like pages from Allen's sketchbook, riffs from underdeveloped story ideas thrown together haphazardly.

It is not "great Allen", even if it is otherwise a supremely characteristic work.

Everything is supposed to be a farce, but it plays out like a boring drama. This film makes 'Midnight in Paris' all the more impressive.

A diverting visit to the Eternal City, as opposed to a romantic adventure in Paris.

Septuagenarian Woody delivers a lovely, gentle perspective--one that might have not been possible in earlier years. In short, he appears to love his characters just a little bit more. And, by default, so do we.

A complete escape from reality where the irrational meets the silly with an overlay of Kafka. Well, that is if Kafka had told better jokes.

If you get right down to it, this might have more solid laughs than its much praised predecessor.

Frustratingly written, haphazardly episodic comic pastiche.

Flighty, fanciful and amusing - but quickly forgettable

Once upon a time, calling a movie "lesser Woody Allen" might be considered a slap in the face. Now, it's more-or-less expected.

Allen's story moves along quite wonderfully, primarily because of his nuanced casting.

Most of the characters are archetypes, yet Allen treats them with genuine affection and avoids the bitterness that's marred much of his recent work.
