... 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.

As on-screen Allen stand-ins go, Wilson is definitely one of the more effective ones, recognizably channelling those Allen neuroses within his own established persona and distinct comic rhythms.

Woody Allen seemed to have lost his fizz as a filmmaker of late - and then he uncorked the sparkling Midnight in Paris, a comic fantasy with all the effervescence of vintage champagne.

Woody Allen's comedy Midnight in Paris is a superior late-period work precisely because it appears that age and wisdom have finally allowed him to discover that his romantic streak can acknowledge his realist/cynical side without succumbing to it.

An accomplished film that's as entertaining as it is deliciously offbeat.

A surprise treat from Woody Allen who has spent too much energy selling his films to mainstream audiences...

Allen wants you to love Paris as much as Gil does and wants to show you the magic, the romance and the spark the city holds for him.
