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.

It's passable Woody waffle designed strictly for fans.
It's fun and it's most welcome.
Allen holds onto his vision of a Golden Age better than anyone else, even while readily acknowledging that it's just a grand illusion.
"Midnight in Paris" is a bonbon to ease the craving for Allen's earlier, funnier films.
Midnight in Paris is a loving embrace of the city, of art and of life itself.
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.
The lack of professional polish feels just right to tell the story of kids who aren't 100 percent sure of what to expect from the big night, but those big, brassy anticipatory trumpets blaring The Temptations' "Get Ready" can't be denied.
Midnight in Paris is frothy, witty, droll and a little enchanting -- all qualities often associated with the City of Light. It doesn't provoke a deep visceral response, but it's still very likable.
It's funny, warm, even enchanting.
A gear shift for a director whose weathered career is jolted back to life, matching bouncy dialogue and a whimsically comical plot with the glossy climes of the sepia toned city of love.
Midnight in Paris intoxicates you, and it's hard not to fall under its spell.
Adding depth to the comedy is a smart thematic idea: that golden ages are never golden to those living through them, who merely hanker to escape their own period too.
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.
