    ★★★

    Cafe Society is an entertaining and funny story filled with great performances, but little more. Granted, not everything has to be Manhattan or Annie Hall, but Allen is at his best when the simple stories are elevated by a unique script, perspective, dialogue, or comedic approach.

So easily digestible, this film is fun to watch, has the just the right amount of humor, and is the best looking Bond film ever.
