It may not Woody Allen's best work, but the frothy, fun A Midsummer Night's Sex Comedy is still worth a look.

It's Allen's refusal to bask in the spotlight -- his willingness and determination to preserve and enhance the ensemble -- that makes Sex Comedy the delight that it is.
It's funny and sweet in spots, though the light moments get lost in the haze of imitation and ambitiousness.
A pleasant disappointment, pleasant because he gets all the laughs he goes for in a visually charming, sweetly paced picture, a disappointment because he doesn't go for more.
Warm, romantic and old-fashioned.
There doesn't seem to be a driving idea behind it, a confident tone to give us the sure notion that Allen knows what he wants to do here.
Picturesque but uncertain.
It's all very pleasant but also all very slight, with the humor and the romance both kept at too low a simmer.
Pure mid-period Allen, a muscle-stretching ensemble comedy with dramatic undertones and playful philosophical musings...Allen's characters ponder the permeable divide between lust and love, and the meanings of sexual intercourse... [Blu-ray]
Inspired by Bergman's Smiles of a Summer Night, andwith a touch of Renoir's Rules of the Game, this period comedy is a minor work, a trifle in Allen's career, worth seeing for some of the supporting acting.
Allen has no affinity for Renoir's robust generosity, yet this study does wonders for his filmmaking
It's not classic Woody, but it has a warmly human attractiveness about it.
It's one of Allen's lightest trifles, but it too contains enough funny jokes and fantasy moments to make it a small treasure.
Not Woody Allen's best - rather witty, but a little on the dull side.
Andrew: He's a wonderful guy and a terrific doctor. Never lost a patient. Got a couple of them pregnant, but never lost one.
"Six characters in search for love."
Halfway through this movie, I didn't believe there was any way I was going to like it at all. I did, however, warm up to it, but still just couldn't find myself really liking the movie. The cinematography was beautiful, the performances were strong, but I didn't like the movie. For having the word Comedy in its title, it sure wasn't that comedic.
The characters were extremely wacky and that lead to an extremely wacky and annoying ending. Woody Allen plays Woody Allen as an inventor. Mary Steenburger is her usual annoying self, but she does give a good performance by her standards. The others were all good, but I didn't find myself liking any of the characters, which is weird for a Woody Allen movie because I normally like the women characters in his movies.
This falls towards the lower half of Allen's movies, when it comes to quality. His movies are really hit and miss for me. I've loved a lot of his movies and I've disliked many of them. Some of them just seem like he couldn't think of anything else, so he made a short little comedy just so he could get his movie out for that year. He's obviously a great director with movies like Hannah and Her Sisters and Manhattan, but sometimes I wonder how I've ever liked a movie from him when I see one like this. Then I go watch Hannah and Her Sisters over again and he's a god of filmmaking once again.
More or less Woody Allen playing himself in a Bergman film. Good for a few laughs, far from him best, far from his worst.
I always forget how funny Woody can be.
