Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's fun and it's most welcome."
‑ Dave Calhoun, Time Out
"Our hero has found his groove among the Lost Generation and, for us, there's some amusement to be had in sharing Gil's thrills -- it's like stepping into a Classic Comics version of A Moveable Feast."
‑ Rick Groen, Globe and Mail
"I continue to be utterly taken with Midnight in Paris."
‑ Blake Howard, 2UE That Movie Show
"It lacks the humor of Annie Hall. It lacks the depth of Manhattan. But it manages to entertain, mainly as an homage to Paris - a romp through the city's intellectual and artistic history."
‑ Charles Ealy, Austin American-Statesman
"The fact that Allen never explains how Bender bends time is a wise choice, there's no bogging down of the narrative which allows the flick to keep skipping along at a effervescent pace."
‑ Erick Weber, NECN
""Midnight in Paris" is a bonbon to ease the craving for Allen's earlier, funnier films."
‑ Joe Williams, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
"Midnight in Paris is charming and clever, at times wickedly astute and hopeful."
‑ Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post
"It's charming and smart, and riddled with little joys."
‑ Dann Gire, Daily Herald (IL)
"Souffle light and long on charm, one of Allen's wittiest and certainly his most literary"
‑ Roger Moore, McClatchy-Tribune News Service
"Nostalgic fluff (for all its faux rejection thereof), but it's my brand of fluff"
‑ Dan Jardine, Cinemania
"Midnight in Paris is a loving embrace of the city, of art and of life itself."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"Woody Allen attracts promising players and does nothing with them."
‑ David Thomson, The New Republic
"It's attractive and easy to slip into, but [Allen] didn't put enough thought into the design, and it soon falls apart."
‑ Lawrence Toppman, Charlotte Observer
"The blend of charm, magic, wit, and characterization come together to make this an engaging and intellectually stimulating experience. This is a great film and one of the best of the year thus far."
‑ Jeff Beck, Examiner.com
"[A] work of genius... [B]ecomes the butt of its own gentle joke... one that wraps up a paralyzing self-awareness in a redemptive self-deprecation to, finally and splendidly, laugh with great good humor at itself."
‑ MaryAnn Johanson, Flick Filosopher
