Plot Summary
Gil Pender (Owen Wilson) is a screenwriter and aspiring novelist. Vacationing in Paris with his fiancee (Rachel McAdams), he has taken to touring the city alone. On one such late-night excursion, Gil encounters a group of strange -- yet familiar -- revelers, who sweep him along, apparently back in time, for a night with some of the Jazz Age's icons of art and literature. The more time Gil spends with these cultural heroes of the past, the more dissatisfied he becomes with the present.

    What's fresh about Midnight in Paris is the way he (Allen) identifies with Gil's idealization of the past, of the Paris that represented art and life at their fullest. show more

    A movie that's loving and wistful and often hysterically funny. show more

    The familiar dialogue here makes one long for something closer to the edginess of "Manhattan" or the offbeat humor of "Vicky Cristina Barcelona." show more

    Woody\'s latest film is one of his best! Don\'t miss it. And keep in mind, Woody wrote every actors\' lines. Astounding!

    One of the best films I\'ve seen in years! Just love it and watched 3 times. Not only the concept, the acting, the cinema-photography are all excellent, but you suddenly get the idea that Wilson IS Woody! Wilson imitates Woody\'s tone and expression, stammering a little and talks slower than average people. It is so entertaining, especially to those who know 19th and 20th century literature and art to see those masters coming alive!
