A snappy, loose-limbed performance from Penn.

January 1, 2000
The atmosphere, combined with Sweet and Lowdown's entertaining momentum and zippy jazz score, makes it easy for you to get swept away for 90 minutes of great jazz and good fun.

Probes a darker vein than many a Woody Allen movie, but it's also a richly comic piece which can join the ranks of this filmmaker's very best work.
January 1, 2000
The bubbly lightness of the music and the giddy fun of Allen's humor give Sweet and Lowdown the gloss of light comedy.
January 1, 2000
I'm not a big Woody Allen fan, but this is a good one.

It is a fictional docudrama that smacks of Woody's playfulness and love for jazz...

The terrific soundtrack are each alone worth a trip to your local movie theater.
January 1, 2000
The real tragedy of this film is that, when all is said and done, it's just not funny.
January 1, 2000
A likable, lively little ditty -- one theme, some clever variations -- that never wears out its welcome.
January 1, 2000
There's a reason why 'sweet' comes before 'lowdown' in the title, and Morton is it.
