    'A man in love with a woman from a different era. I see a photograph.
    - I see a film.
    - I see an insurmountable problem.
    - I see ... a rhinoceros.'

    Prepare yourself to be transported into the artistic capital of the early 20th century. Whether you like literature, painting, music or sculpture, whether you prefer Fitzgerald or Hemingway, Picasso or Dalí, Midnight in Paris has got them all.

    I don't have a ton of complaints about this movie. I thought it was very well made and acted, the writing is strong, and the themes are well explored. I just found the movie acutely mediocre. Thats not to say I didn't understand what it was going for, or I didn't recognize the famous artists being paraded before me. The in-laws and Owen's fiancé were excruciatingly annoying and one demential in my opinion, but Wilson does a great job as…

    Gil and Inez travel to Paris as a tag-along vacation on her parents' business trip. Gil is a successful Hollywood writer but is struggling on his first novel. He falls in love with the city and thinks they should move there after they get married, but Inez does not share his romantic notions of the city or the idea that the 1920s was the golden age. When Inez goes off dancing with her friends, Gil takes a walk at midnight…

    Pretty unrealistic - Paris looks way more like a toilet

    I am of two minds when it comes to this film, if only because the film itself seems stuck between two types. On the one hand, this film contains some of Allen's most expressive work, with the writer/director's great auteur flourishes making some of the great humorous observations that can be found in some of his great films. On the other hand, it also never escapes being essentially Woody Allen lite. There's nothing challenging…

    This is a light, witty film which I would have enjoyed more if it wasn't about a wealthy, privileged screenwriter getting to do all the things he ever wanted in an absurd dream-come-true bit of time travelling.

    Hats off to Owen Wilson, though, for basically doing a softer, broader, pudgier and blonder impersonation of Woody Allen for an hour and a half and I really liked that opening montage of Paris, though actually how hard to you have to work…

    "This is unbelievable! Look at this! There's no city like this in the world. There never was."

    Time travel. Literature. Romance. Paris. Rain. Woody Allen keeps giving surprise after surprise, in this extremely refreshing rom-com. And boy, are his women drop-dead gorgeous!

    The way the various themes merge in Allen's fresh canvas, is pure genius. There's nyctophilia, time travel, true-blue romance, a self-discovering quest, and creativity. Magic trumps logic, and I was left dreaming away into the realms of my…

    Even though I really enjoy the comedic part of Wilson's career, must I admit that I've found a whole new appreciation of Wilson's acting. I think I'll have to thank Wes Anderson for that... Since I've had that realization have I come to the conclusion that I always will connect his performances closely to the Anderson films. But even though the roles he plays doesn't vary in extreme ways, I never seem to tire of Wilson. Midnight in Paris is…
