TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic 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.

"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.

Midnight in Paris is charming and clever, at times wickedly astute and hopeful.

Denver Post
Top Critic

There is breezy comedy to be made of a YouTube-age writer meeting the icons and idols of a bygone, classical era, but Allen goes deeper, expanding on his time-travel device to make unexpected and unexpectedly generous observations.

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.
