It's a chance for fans of Allen's earlier work to see glimpses of his brilliance, with a smart and charming literary fantasy that makes the most of the beautiful city that serves as its backdrop.

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.

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.

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.

Midnight in Paris is a very unselfish and lovely approach to inspiration, love, and the written word. A must watch.

Overall, Midnight in Paris is so d'lightful, so d'lovely, you're liable to forgive it anything. If you weren't in love with Paris before, prepare to be seduced.

... Allen brings his fantasy to life with such affection and joy that he transports us into his dream come true as a shared fantasy.

Breezy and casually profound, with a killer gimmick that keeps on giving.

It's charming and smart, and riddled with little joys.

It's attractive and easy to slip into, but [Allen] didn't put enough thought into the design, and it soon falls apart.

It lacks the humor of Annie Hall. It lacks the depth of Manhattan. But it manages to entertain, mainly as an homage to Paris - a romp through the city's intellectual and artistic history.

Souffle light and long on charm, one of Allen's wittiest and certainly his most literary

The blend of charm, magic, wit, and characterization come together to make this an engaging and intellectually stimulating experience. This is a great film and one of the best of the year thus far.

The fact that Allen never explains how Bender bends time is a wise choice, there's no bogging down of the narrative which allows the flick to keep skipping along at a effervescent pace.

Nostalgic fluff (for all its faux rejection thereof), but it's my brand of fluff

[A] work of genius... [B]ecomes the butt of its own gentle joke... one that wraps up a paralyzing self-awareness in a redemptive self-deprecation to, finally and splendidly, laugh with great good humor at itself.
