    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    Suffers from lulls and lapses and one lulu of a casting gaffe, but this keenly observant spoof of the fame game is hardly the work of a burnout. show more

    Edward Guthmann San Francisco Chronicle

    If your tolerance for Branagh's shtick and Woody's narrowness of focus is as low as mine, you can take solace in the director's joke on himself. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    The movie's shot in black and white; Allen is one of the rare and valuable directors who sometimes insists in working in the format that is the soul of cinema. show more

    David Sterritt Christian Science Monitor

    The idea of a Woody Allen movie about fame is enticing, but a meandering screenplay and uninspired acting make this one of his thinnest, tinniest films. show more

    Ron Wells Film Threat

    I can't really remember the last time I saw a movie with this much biting satire and brilliance that was utterly excruciating half the time. show more

    Steve Davis Austin Chronicle

    Purportedly a seriocomic contemplation on a civilization that's lost its way, the movie jabs at America's fascination with its false idols without ever hitting its target. show more
