Is To Rome with Love great Woody Allen? No. It's not even very good Woody Allen. It's probably mediocre Woody Allen, at best. But mediocre Woody Allen is still better than the majority of the movies made today.
Woody Allen's new movie, To Rome with Love, is light and fast, with some of the sharpest dialogue and acting that he's put on the screen in years. The picture gently but surely moves back and forth between romantic comedy and satirical farce.
To Rome with Love feels thin and lazy, another collection of familiar ensemble skits carelessly strung together in a cross-generational contemplation of the Big Issues that have plagued Allen's life and fed his art.
It's not Nero who's fiddling, but Allen, bopping and dithering around the city like a tourist so desperate to cram in all the sights that he comes away only with a few crisp highlights and a lot of out-of-focus snapshots.
