    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    It's a real charmer from a director who feels that a knockabout romantic farce doesn't have to be mindless -- take that, "America's Sweethearts." show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    It's middling Allen, which means that fans won't be sorry to see it, while everyone else can wait until the next "Bullets Over Broadway." show more

    Susan Wloszczyna USA Today

    Since a goodly portion of Jade is given over to the barbed banter lobbed by Allen and a solid Helen Hunt (in Stanwyck mode as a peevish efficiency expert who challenges his façade of male superiority), Woody the wordsmith is in full evidence, too. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    The movie isn't terrible -- a few clever notions snap to life and pay off, at least modestly -- but it's dispirited and eventually dispiriting, a force-fed farce that falls far short of fascination. show more

    Carrie Rickey Philadelphia Inquirer

    It's not fresh and irreverent, qualities we admire in Allen. It is recycled and irrelevant. show more

    Lightweight, inoffensive fare, as bland as a sleepwalker under a hypnotist's spell. show more

    Michael Wilmington Chicago Tribune

    Seemingly a simple comedy, it actually -- like all Allen's "simple" comedies -- has a lot to say. Will the audience listen or just dismiss it as minor, out-of-date Woody? If they do, it's their loss. show more

    Lou Lumenick New York Post

    Woody Allen's most purely entertaining film in years. show more

    Miami Herald

    Hardly the first of Woody Allen's love letters to the good old days, but it's a high-spirited, entertaining one, falling along the same lines as "Radio Days." show more

    Jay Carr Boston Globe

    There's nothing major here, certainly nothing on the order of my favorite among Allen's retro workouts of the past decade, ''Bullets Over Broadway.'' But it's entertaining all the same. show more
