Hollywood Ending

Critics Consensus

Although Hollywood Ending contains some zany one-liners, its promising premise is far from developed.

Movie Info

Woody Allen stars as Val Waxman, a two-time Oscar winner turned washed-up, neurotic director in desperate need of a comeback. When it comes, Waxman finds himself backed into a corner: Work for his ex-wife Ellie (Tea Leoni) or forfeit his last shot. Is Val blinded by love when he opts for the reconnect? Is love blind when it comes to Ellie's staunch support? Literally and figuratively, the proof is the picture.

Audience Reviews for Hollywood Ending

  • Aug 12, 2013
    Since the 1970s, Woody Allen has been pretty consistent with his filmmaking output, trying his best to release at least one film a year. Of course, there have been some that have been less-than-stellar while there are others that have been great, which is always bound to happen. 'Hollywood Ending' isn't bad entertainment, but it's not great Woody Allen, and I think that's why it gets a lot of flack from critics and fans alike. 'Hollywood Ending' doesn't quite have the director's unparalleled ear for situational comedy and witty dialogue, but it does have his trademark knack for creating brilliant one-liners and sharp satire, and there are a lot of hilarious observations made about the film industry. Ultimately, 'Hollywood Ending' doesn't take full of advantage of its concept and could have been much funnier, but it's still passable entertainment, and because it's Woody Allen, it's automatically better than most of the other stuff out there.

    This movie is not Woody Allen at his best. But I find Woody Allen almost compulsively likeable. There are zingy one-liners and a bit of editorializing about the movie industry. I think Allen could have taken this movie further with the blind director gags. But for the most part, it's an enjoyable clever romp. Particularly liked the twist at the end.

    The social and Holllywood commentary in this film offers more laughs than most comedies provide grotesque ones. Very underrated.

    Sadly ridiculous with probably one of the worst casts Allen has assembled for any of his films.
