Mid life crises complete with sports car and bimbo - fortune teller fakery - new love - unresolved stuff - It's a Woody Allen film!

Wonderful amusing little film with great performances from wonderful, amazing actors! Very funny, quirky and sweet! LOVE Woody Allen!

The only person who seemed worth getting to know was the fortune hunting fortune teller, but her role went nowhere.

Typical Woody Allen with relationships gone haywire and many secrets we know but the characters don't. Fairly entertaining and mostly good acting directing etc. Better than most movies I see.

The pits. Ugly cinematography, bad acting, a script that goes nowhere... until a demolition derby of cheap ironies is your idea of somewhere. Brolin, in particular, was a total embarrassment -- maybe the worst performance ever in an Allen film.

A not so great Allen film.

Classic Woody Allen
More twists and turns than a kayak down river in a slalom race.
Ending sort of like Marigold Hotel.
Would be great to watch a second time if a person could forget the multiple endings

An excellent movie, similar to "Match Point" and "Cassandra's Dream", but not as dark.

This one did not leave me wanting more. Freida was the eye candy- and nothing more. Disappointing story.

Pointless and muddled, with whiny characters and farce-like situations that are set into motion, then completely abandoned. The uneven tone plays out like someone who's changed his mind mid-stream: set up his jokes, and then never bothered to write the punchlines. It also employs one of Allen's most pernicious character types: the stupid, cheap hooker who is nothing but a trash can where he throws his most misogynistic impulses. Sloppily written, badly constructed, unfunny.
Not just a misfire--a disaster.
