The film's pessimistic view of life and relationships probably won't win the director any new fans, but the intricate, darkly ironic plot should keep the Allen faithful intrigued.

Light, fun, entertaining.
November 17, 2018
Rather uninspired and insubstantial, but entirely watchable.

It's one of Allen's lesser films yet, as is so often the case with his B-material, it still features terrific performances...and a cluster of truth-nailing scenes that are better than what you typically find in major releases.

Allen's mixed experiences with London stand in sharp contrast with his love affair with the French capital (the setting for last year's return to form, Midnight in Paris).

Like a second hand clothes shop, it is comfortable rather than exciting, predictable rather than refreshing, even though it boasts a great cast who believe in their master, Woody Allen
January 12, 2013
It may not be Allen's best work, but this flutter and change of hearts is easy to watch and enjoy as wishes and dreams play their tug of war

The cast is the main draw here, but it's also the movie's biggest problem. Hopkins and Jones are excellent, and a greater focus on that couple might well have resulted in a much better film.

Allen has said he makes films as they offer him a distraction, and he has created just that: An enjoyable but instantly forgettable distraction.
March 18, 2011
The distinguished actors are as strong as you would expect, the narrative structure is well-crafted, and there's something curiously bracing about Allen's misanthropy.
March 17, 2011
You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger is a typically wry, rueful ensemble piece in which love makes fools of everyone.
March 17, 2011
It's interesting and worthwhile, with creative vitamins that are absent in so much of what fills the cinemas.
March 15, 2011
Allen avoids giving any possible answers or resolutions - apart from 'getting in touch with your spiritual side'
March 14, 2011
Still no signs of the master re-living past glories, but more than worthwhile for Allen diehards.

A string of A-list British acting talent adds a zing of interest to this somewhat uneven Woody Allen relationship farce. Yet despite its failings, the film is enjoyably watchable and packed with knowing observations.

While Tall Dark can be a tad stilted, taking place as it does in Allen's fictionalized universe, most of it functions so smoothly it makes you forget about all the strings being pulled
October 27, 2010
The slight pic benefits greatly from the talented ensemble cast that makes more of the tiresome dialogue than can be expected.
October 27, 2010
At least on one viewing and with no distance -- it falls shy of being a great Woody Allen picture.

At this point, it's all just variations on a theme, and Stranger is a minor but pleasant variation
