    Interesting! Many events that we can come to pass in a relationship. Know the balance is not easy.

    Too light-headed to be felt as a drama, too sour to be considered a comedy. Yet, thanks to Gemma Jones, Josh Brolin and Naomi Watts, the film does hold some interest.

    Apart from Woody's magic way of expressing things and ideas, in this movie we have a rather interesting story depicting fraud, and disappointment. The cast is as always excellent. Anthony Hopkins portrays an idea of how a man of his age would react in a similar case, and Naomi Watts, Josh Brolin, Freida Pinto complete the portrayal of today's dubious personalities. The picture is completed by an excellent Gemma Jones, a woman who wants to believe so as to avoid being fallen down by the circumstances.

    Unfortunately a film where you don't really root for the main couple, lovely as Freda Pinto is (they both basically leave their partners for each other, which is a hard one to play at the best of times). Lucy Punch is an absolute hoot as the Cockney hooker who ensnares Michael Caine, while Naomi Watts's characters despair is something of a voice for the audience. Why won't everyone just grow up?

    Felt more in line with something like Cassandra’s Dream than the better Woody movies, but still, pretty entertaining! Anthony Hopkins awkwardly telling his young misses to wait so his viagra can kick in! Funny stuff.

    Not one of Woody Allen's best, but the film offers some believable performances from some solid actors (Anthony Hopkins, Naomi Watts, Antonio Banderas, Gemma Jones, Josh Brolin). An older couple have gone their separate ways, the husband into the arms of a sexy gold digger and the wife into the equally greedy clutches of a fortune teller ... meanwhile, their daughter and her husband have serious troubles of their own. As in most Woody Allen films, the characters deal with…

    Another year, another Woody Allen film. How does You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger compare to other Allen films? How does it work as a movie on its own?

    The best way to put it is that this film is just okay. It's not great, not amazing, not bad, not terrible, not boring. It just is. A lot of recycled elements from previous Allen projects, with a new if unoriginal spin. A lot of laughs but not the best jokes/humour to be found in a Woody Allen film. As usual the cast is excellent.

    Not his greatest film but still worth watching.

    I remember this being very mediocre when I first saw it but this time around I really liked it. Cute, charming, breezy and hilariously tragic, Tall Dark Stranger is a fun exercise in Woody Allen's usual existential dilemma. The cast is exceptional.

    Rather dull and dry for a Woody Allen movie.

    As a fortune teller states in Woody Allen's 'You will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger,' “sometimes the illusions work better than the medicine.” Come to think of it there is a medicine in the film that almost all the characters imbibe in, and it works its magic by granting them the power to behave very badly towards the people they supposedly love, as well as themselves.

    “You drink too much mother,” says Sally (Naomi Watts) to scotch-loving Helena (Gemma Jones).…

    Of the 41 Allen films I've seen, this is the worst. It's a lazy, paint-by-numbers film that feels like a soap opera on steroids. This is a cautionary tale for why you shouldn't pump out one film per year. I can't believe Anthony Hopkins agreed to be in this. What's sadder is that I can't even call his performance a redeeming feature.
