May 2, 2002
A flaccid farce peppered with bland performances, meaningless-humorless scenes and a scattering of old jokes, many of which don't work.

I liked the movie without loving it.

May 2, 2002
The comedy is perfunctory and rarely worth more than a chuckle, and all of the attacks on the film industry come across as shallow and familiar.

Essentially one long, belabored gag.

This film definitely feels like one that got away.

Woody Allen can write and deliver a one liner as well as anybody. But I had a lot of problems with this movie.
May 2, 2002
Allen lingers over tired Hollywood jokes, dragging down the first half of the film and making the second half seem slower than it is.

This is, by far, the worst film of Woody Allen's career, and that includes "Everyone Says I Love You". Painful.

The whole thing feels thrown desperately together.

June 1, 2002
The frog prince of New York comedy again wallows in the middle of the frame as various familiar faces, namely various princes and princesses from television, dart about him like so many flies with a death wish.

Trying to dredge humor from the limitations of the blind is a sorry task, unworthy of Allen's talents.

May 3, 2002
A concept that sounds a great deal funnier within the confines of a sentence than when executed over a seemingly endless 114-minute running time.

If Joe Blow from Topeka had walked into a studio exec's office with the screenplay for Hollywood Ending, he'd had been escorted off the lot by security.
May 8, 2002
But even a blind man can see that this turgid comedy is mechanical and uninspired and even worse, it's a sour grapes film.

This film may have its titular Hollywood Ending, but Allen needs to open his eyes and concentrate once again on what made his films great in the first place.

Val's condition mainly facilitates some agreeable (if klutzily staged) pratfalls and a few tepid snickers about artistic 'vision.'
May 1, 2002
Once the energy from the jokes dies down, we're left with a project so stale you feel like opening a window to let some air in.

It isn't junk, but it sure isn't the Allen we used to know.

The more the film struggles to entertain, the less funny it becomes.
