  • Melancholy and doubt may seem like gloomy qualities to blend into an amorous romp. But that shot of gravity is what makes Magic in the Moonlight memorable and distinctively Woody Allen. show more

  • Perhaps the movie's use of the past is more than cosmetic in this one regard: Watching Woody Allen revisit his old themes and obsessions already feels like a nostalgic experience. Actually setting the movie back in time deflects this and makes a virtue of a shortcoming. show more

  • Ms. Stone is entrancing, whether Sophie is in or out of her trance state, and so is the movie as a whole. show more

    a pleasant movie, nothing too funny but a few laughs along the way---the cast is excellent and the dialogue is top notch but easily a rental--- grade B-

    Colin Firth was awesome in this movie!....Emma Stone was excellent also. This was extremely well done and the scenery was great. We loved it and encourage you to see it! Very amusing!

    Woody Allen combined Pygmalion & My Fair Lady AND TWEAKED THEM TOGETHER to create a very fine movie...
