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 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.

It's one of Allen's lightest trifles, but it too contains enough funny jokes and fantasy moments to make it a small treasure.

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.

A Midsummer Night's Sex Comedy circles around the nuances of love-a web that both tantalizes and confounds Americans.

Top-flight Allen. Probably his most gorgeous color film.

Not among Woody's most memorable, but it's still pleasant enough to warrant a visit.

This MidsummerÔ(TM)s Night is fun, witty, and wild, although ultimately forgettable.
