San Francisco Chronicle

By Mick LaSalle
A movie that's loving and wistful and often hysterically funny.

Wall Street Journal

By Joe Morgenstern
In Woody Allen's beguiling and then bedazzling new comedy, nostalgia isn't at all what it used to be - it's smarter, sweeter, fizzier and ever so much funnier.

The Hollywood Reporter

By Todd McCarthy
Darius Khondji's cinematography evokes to the hilt the gorgeously inviting Paris of so many people's imaginations (while conveniently ignoring the rest), and the film has the concision and snappy pace of Allen's best work.

Philadelphia Inquirer

By Carrie Rickey
Midnight in Paris is not a perfect movie - as in "Julie & Julia" one senses its creator's impatience to leave the bleached-out present for the colorful past. But it is warm and effortless, qualities that make it embraceable.

Rolling Stone

By Peter Travers
What's fresh about Midnight in Paris is the way he (Allen) identifies with Gil's idealization of the past, of the Paris that represented art and life at their fullest.

New York Daily News

By Joe Neumaier
As in "Purple Rose," the film works best when tweaking the disparate worlds thrown together, though "Midnight" is frothier, and so Wilson shines.

By Ella Taylor
But lo! Isn't that Owen Wilson, blond and goyische to the gills, yet faithfully replicating the put-upon slump of the Allen shoulders, the quavering stammers about art vs. success, literature vs. Hollywood?

Boston Globe

By Ty Burr
A sweet-natured trifle, as flavorful and as thin as a crepe.

USA Today

By Claudia Puig
The familiar dialogue here makes one long for something closer to the edginess of "Manhattan" or the offbeat humor of "Vicky Cristina Barcelona."

Entertainment Weekly

By Lisa Schwarzbaum
Allen has fun in his imaginary French capital, turning his star-studded cast loose to interpret their characters as they wish.
