On a Magical Night

Critics Consensus

It isn't quite as exceptional as the titular evening, but On a Magical Night offers enough Gallic whimsy to satisfy audiences in the mood for some romance.

All Critics (31) | Top Critics (10) | Fresh (20) | Rotten (11)

  • Yet, somehow, inexplicably, the movie is ponderous and flat, and needlessly freighted with tedious exchanges about the transience of love and the requirements of fidelity.

  • On a Magical Night finally feels recitative of past lovelorn material - especially given the classic Paris setting - rather than fully alive.

  • I wish this film was a little lighter and had more lyricism to it, but it's pretty stage-bound and doesn't add up to a lot.

  • [W]e don't believe in these characters and conflicts any more than we believe that one's former paramours could be conjured in a hotel suite. But at least it's fun while it lasts.

    May 8, 2020 | Rating: B- | Full Review…
  • The whole thing is only as original as a dull midlife crisis, retrofitted into a whimsical screwball mold that feels miscalculated.

    May 8, 2020 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • It's best when it surrenders to the whimsy of its premise, but often is so busy articulating its ideas that it misses the fun of bringing them to life.
