    For Woody, it's looking more and more like the end of his days of whine and neurosis.

    It's thanks to her (Leoni) that we stay tuned to Mr. Allen's comic premise long after it has gone from delightfully outrageous to off-puttingly preposterous.

    USA Today Mike Clark

    Woody Allen is good for his funniest screen romp in a while, thanks to a few evenly spaced standout scenes of laugh-out-loud intensity.

    Chicago Tribune Michael Wilmington

    Not perfect, and neither are life or the movies. But you'd have to be blind yourself not to relish its qualities or laugh at its barbs.

For Families provided by Common Sense Media

OK for kids 15+

Ephemeral, Woody Allen. Only for his fans.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this movie has some sexual references and situations, including adultery. There's some strong language and a reference to drug use.

  • Families can talk about why people sometimes put up obstacles to realizing their dreams. What made Val decide to reconcile with his son? Why wasn't it possible earlier? Why did Woody Allen name the male characters Val, Al, and Hal?
