This is the vital city that inspired Fellini – alive and lived in. When an actor falters or a joke falls flat, Roma stays fresh and...

By Stephanie Zacharek
To Rome with Love - rangy, vaguely ridiculous and trepidatiously optimistic - is Allen's film for tomorrow.

Woody Allen has become such a beguiling travel agent that he rolls through these stories with a relaxed effervescence that is rather...

Boston Globe

By Ty Burr
A charming but terribly self-indulgent trifle that's less than the sum of its many parts.

It's neither one of Allen's best, nor among his worst. It is also not likely to win audiences over with the passion that "Midnight in...

Allen the writer-director has gone tone-deaf this time around, somehow not realizing that the nonstop prattling of the...

For better or worse, Woody Allen turns out a movie every year. Last year's "Midnight in Paris" was better than better; that is to say,...

The adjective I ultimately chose for this movie: "Disappointing"

By hommex
I'm a long, long-time Woody Allen fan. I go to each of his movies with hope ... gratitude for the delights he's given me in the past, and forgiveness for the duds or moments of dud-ness. During...

To Rome With Love

By Peneflix
Is an abomination, travesty, an insult to the craft of filmmaking and a humiliating example of a auteur (Woody Allen) gone amuck. Out of respect for my, if at times limited, but still viable insights;...

To Rome With Love not this movie

By sallyruscitti
Not nearly enough of Rome, the multitude of imbecilc poorly acted story lines left you laughing only because they were so cliche. There were ways that many of the vignettes could have been made...

Good movie

By marbig
I am a little surprised by the cluster of very bad reviews on this movie. Yes, it is not among the best of WA's movies. It is a regular WA movie, which means it is clever and entertaining. It has...

Waste of Time

By waltb3
Half way through this movie my wife and I wanted to walk out. It seemed to me that the movie was made without any thought given to to the screenplay, character development or story line....

The WORST film WA has ever made..!

By DSteve1050
I am a HUGE Woody Allen fan....and I nearly got up and left about half way through this trainwreck of a film. It's sad that Mr. Allen even thinks that his fans would accept this as a work of art....

This is a good movie

By gordonwylie
I disagree with some of these reviews. This is a very good movie. A lot is going on here and to paraphrase a scene in the movie that maybe the director does not want you to understand this movie...

If you like Woody Allen go.

By why_me
This is not his best in recent years with Woody playing Woody, Jesse playing Woody, and an little know Italian playing Woody. The only character not playing Woody is Alec Baldwin who was a lot of...

Funny and Charming
