Midnight in Paris

Critics Consensus

It may not boast the depth of his classic films, but the sweetly sentimental Midnight in Paris is funny and charming enough to satisfy Woody Allen fans.

  • Allen holds onto his vision of a Golden Age better than anyone else, even while readily acknowledging that it's just a grand illusion.

  • Our hero has found his groove among the Lost Generation and, for us, there's some amusement to be had in sharing Gil's thrills -- it's like stepping into a Classic Comics version of A Moveable Feast.

Audience Reviews for Midnight in Paris


With this charming tale about a dissatisfied young man who would rather live in the golden days of a long past époque than in the present, Woody Allen comes up with another adorable film and seems like having a lot of fun putting those delightful witty lines in the mouth of his idols.

Another light but quite mysterious and powerful drama from Woody Allen, as simple as always.. The cast weren't full of A-list actor, but they're pretty convincing enough to me as they brought a good performance.. But overall, it's just another sweet romantic movie by Woody Allen.. Not one of his best but definitely worth to watch..

One of the most enjoyable and delightful of Allen's films to me. Wilson was great as Woody Allen as well.
