what the others say
"As a filmmaker, Allen has grappled with the temptations of repeating himself instead of forging a fresh path. You can feel that conflict here, and watching him work it out is exhilarating."
"Sporadically entertaining, light, shallow, self-plagiarising."
"It's far too ponderous. Still, it's not wholly terrible, and that's not something you can say about Allen's films very often these days."
