  • There was a lot I liked in Cletis Tout, including the performances and the very audacity of details like the magic tricks and the carrier pigeons. But it seemed a shame that the writer and director, Chris Ver Wiel, took a perfectly sound story idea and complicated it into an exercise in style. Less is more. show more

  • Harmless, mildly enjoyable. show more

  • It's almost worth the price of admission to see Allen paying homage to "Singin' in the Rain" in the final sequence. Almost. show more
