The performances, however, are very enjoyable, with first honors going to Chazz Palminteri and Dianne Wiest.

A backstage comedy bolstered by healthy shots of prohibition gangster melodrama and romantic entanglements.

Mr. Allen has drawn on autobiographical specifics in other films, but this may be the one in which he speaks most seriously from the heart.

If not bowled over, we're at least won over.

One of Allen's best and most revealing comedies, as much a moral meditation as it is dazzling fun.

Has more laughs packed into its exquisitely orchestrated 99 minutes than anything [Allen's] done in nearly 20 years.

Woody Allen at his best -- a gem of a Broadway fable with a crafty premise, a raft of brilliant actors at the top of their form and a bouncy, just-for-pleasure attitude.

The most insightful and deliciously droll look at show business since Robert Altman skewered Hollywood in 1992's The Player.

Buzzes with classic one-liners, bright performances and off-the-cuff contemplations about love, art and death.

The most substantive, accessible -- not to mention the funniest -- film that the prolific writer-director has made in years.
Top Critic

Chicago Sun-Times

The movie is very funny and, in the way it follows its logic wherever it leads, surprisingly tough.
