Sadly, it's a fail. Predictable, boring, overacting... Normaly love Woody's work but not this time.

This was indeed entertaining. A nice/sweet/somewhat crazylike in a good funny way. Enjoyable to sum it up.

I never was a Woody Allen fan but watching Midnight and Paris and this one made me think I should go back and watch some more Woody Allen films. I enjoyed this.

I emailed a friend who happens to be a film critic and asked his opinion. It's HORRIBLE!!! Give this one a big miss... it's dreadful! Wish I had contacted him before spending the money...

Highly underrated movie. Yes, sure for people who are used to Woody Allen's usual more subtle message it might be a bit missing but it brings an interesting point of view on media and it's sure to bring out a few laughs out of you. Also it's reminiscent of Bananas' absurdity so you can't say it's not a Woody movie. Finally there's also Ellen Page doing what she does best, playing with men's emotion. My friend and I greatly appreciated it.

I thought it was frivolous and did not make sense, but... it was very amusing and I laughed quite a bit... very good Woody Allan movie... good practice for people taking italian lessons.. I think it's very worth seeing... I thought good acting... and maybe the opera singer should consider a change of career... great voice...

An OK film... some vignettes better than others. Not a great film... perhaps better watching it on Netflix or when it comes out on video.

Woody Allen's latest work is mind blowing. The acting, although a bit 'theatre-like', is incredible. Each and every character went through a redeeming point which brings you a wonderful lesson. The humour was pretty good, but not everyone will understand it or consider it as funny. To some, this movie may seem too long and I agree with them completely, but this is due to the large number of characters and the plots that overlap one another. I recommend this to anyone who has an artsy mind and an open heart to watch this; this may only suit a small number of audience.

Very long winded. Disapointing given the crew casting. If someone tells you it's very clever, then they are not. Save your cash for a better film.

Woody Allen's latest is TERRIBLE. His hackneyed movies about white people used to have epiphanies and the characters grew- LONG LONG AGO. Paris was weak and shallow but brilliant in its construction. The acting in this is so wooden by all but the true Europeans, the self-discoveries so shallow, the premise so weak that it was difficult to watch. Even Rome is not shown in its best light. And anyone who used to think Woody being Woody was funny is NOW DEAD. That was 40 years ago, Woody. They're DEAD.

Great spoof on the vacuity of celebrity and reality TV and at same time a slice of real life with a great dose of tongue in cheek humour and splash of superficiality of contemporary sexual relationships. I laughed more than any movie I've seen this year, or last.

A good movie, very Woody Allen. It's interesting, funny and entertaining. Good cast. I think it's one of those movies that is not very serious, makes you forget your problems and have a good laugh.

I get the feeling that Woody let actors improvise some of the scenes, and most of the jokes were tired one-liners that failed to get the desired response. Sadly, I paid dearly.

A seemingly disconnected film that manages somehow to convey the importance of Rome as a backdrop. Woody Allen manages to cover the English and Italian stories quite well, while illustrating absurdity and craziness that crosses language boundaries. The only problem is that Allen casts himself as he usually does: an uptight, neurotic, slightly nerdish slightly intellectual Jew who means well, but in truth is a putz! Well worth seeing if you enjoy chuckles and an occasional belly laughter, but no deep roars from this work, sadly.

A really fun and entertaining movie, took my mind away completely to the other world of Rome, funny, great cast, terrific! Everyone was laughing and talking about it on the way out of the theatre! Great that Woody was in it as well.

Beautifully shot. Ought to do wonders for Rome's tourism industry... Some good acting, although not great. Nice to see Mr Allen in his own movie, acting in how own usual and expected manner. Still, not enough to carry the entire film. No surprises here and clearly not one of Woody Allen's best.

Woody, what happened? I thought this film would've been so much better. Really. I've seen this all before, but in a different location. Woody, I am not going to give up on you now. Please, just go through the script carefully with a few others. Write a story that is worth shooting in a foreign country. Add some drama if your comedic side isn't with it. Not your best.

This may be a much poorer movie than MIDNIGHT IN PARIS, but it is still a solid and entertaining film. There's the neuroticism and a bit too much of CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM in these scenes sometimes, but they are funny. The entertainment here is not the plot, it is the tribute to the great city of Rome, old and new, then and now. The Americans in this film look like outsiders, and every time they change from Italian to English, it seems like the movie loses some lustre. There is some opportune, if not very good, acting. There are no miscasts really. Case in point is Alec Baldwin, who is there to move the plot along. Allen casts himself beautifully. There are some underlying subplots in the film that bring it together yet keep each story distinct. Everything that is there is necessary. So why only a 7? For one, it is too lighthearted and by the end we don't take it seriously. For two, it is weaker when compared to other Woody Allen films. Also, there are some gaps that could have been better filled and Allen didn't take the opportunity to go past the ho-hum. We are left with something at the same level as an HBO mini-series comedy. But then again, HBO is only TV. On the other hand, THE SOPRANOS is better than almost any film. Finally, it is a good idea to go see this movie just to get a lift rather than expect a cinematographic masterpiece.

Woody Allen tries to capitalize on his recent success, "Midnight in Paris", by picking a story that has as its underlying theme another great city, Rome. He fails miserably. I was expecting clever, witty and amusing, and instead I got tired, disjointed and overdone. His own character -- he has a part in the movie -- is a tired rehash of all the other neurotic wimpy characters he's portrayed in previous movies (think "Love and Death", "Broadway Danny Rose", "Sleeper", "Bananas") The other actors -- Eisenberg, Baldwin and Benigni in particular -- put in credible performances, but this isn't enough to get the movie's disjointed plot off the ground. Don't go. Consider renting only if you're a huge Allen fan.

Typical Woody Allen film. But this one was very disappointing. Dialogue was old and tired as was the story line. Ellen Page was annoying. Alec Baldwin was wonderful. The scenes of Rome were the best thing about the film. Loved the cinematography.

Does Jesse Eisenberg represent a young Woody? He could! Jewish, neurotic, messed up. Compare it in your mind to his earlier flick Manhattan. Enjoyable movie, and the scenery is fabulous. It's so evocative of the place. Baldwin was like a Greek chorus. Everyone's possibilities in life. So, Midnight in Paris played with time, and so does this... what next? All Woody's movies make you think... if nothing else...

Add a ton of hearty laughs, many whimsical moments, interesting characters in a gorgeously filmed Rome and you have a pretty entertaining movie - a satirical farce. Many may say that the four segments are not connected, or for that matter that neither is the time sequence, however this did not bother me a bit. Each segment had its own flavour and punch and somehow they connected in their own way, as only Woody could pull off so well, in my opinion. I thoroughly enjoyed this film - very Woody - very funny.

I love the genius of Woody Allen. His movies are very entertaining and unique. Love the European themed movies of late Midnight in Paris last year and now this new one set in Rome... love the way Rome is depicted. The characters are stricly Allenseque and you have to understand his humour and the way he thinks... I do and love all his films comedy or drama - the man is a genius even at 76.

What was Alec Baldwin's character doing in this movie? His character was not needed whatsoever. The stories were somewhat disconnected. Not one of Allen's best works that's for sure.

Woody is a megalomaniac living in dreams of his past. This pathetic drivel is unfit to be called a “movie”. The actors who participated in this travesty should be embarrassed.

A really pleasant Woody Allen movie, not as great as Midnight in Paris, but in intelligence, dialogue and originality, far above most American comedies. It was so good in location that we went and bought tickets to go to Rome within 3 days of seeing the film.

I can't help it, I love Woddy Allens humor, always have and always will. Yah, Woody is his usual neurotic self but it's a smart kind of funny and he always manages to mirror a little neurosis in all of us and those we know. It's a fine cast and the actors are enjoyable to watch. What's there not to like, unless you'r bored with Woody Allen in which case you'll hate this movie. I saw the movie twice and enjoyed it the second time as much as the first.
