[A]n amusing fantasy with a slight but charming hook.
January 14, 2020
A romantic comedy that boasts a clever and thought-provoking script.
October 31, 2019
An uplifting ode to the notion that honouring the idealistic side of ourselves is often the best therapy.
August 24, 2019
A whimsical delight, completely unexpected and awash with flavor and color.

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.

It's funny, warm, even enchanting.

Midnight in Paris intoxicates you, and it's hard not to fall under its spell.

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.
May 3, 2015
Breezy and casually profound, with a killer gimmick that keeps on giving.
June 1, 2014
I continue to be utterly taken with Midnight in Paris.
August 3, 2013
It's charming and smart, and riddled with little joys.
August 3, 2013
It's attractive and easy to slip into, but [Allen] didn't put enough thought into the design, and it soon falls apart.
August 3, 2013
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.
