1.0 out of 5 stars Someone pension of Woody ASAP, 6 Aug. 2012
This review is from: Midnight in Paris [DVD][2011] [2012] (DVD)
When will old comedians realise that they are no longer needed? Steve Martin continues to churn out unwatchable crud, as do Eddie Murphy and Robin Williams. Sure, there are some intermitent returns to form: Bowfinger for the first two, Insomnia for Williams but they cannot save what has been a downward spiral of twenty-plus years. Once more Woody Allen gets a free pass from the critics on the strength of having once made a quip about his brain being his second favourite organ about fifty years ago and since then the remainder bins of HMV have been stuffed to the gunwhales with his films. Midnight in Paris is no exception, there are no jokes, just a slightly weak plot regarding time travel with Owen Wilson taking over the role of Woody's avatar despite being about seven feet taller and having the voice of Lightening McQueen, and forcing out the trademark weak dialogue. Is there anything to redeem this? Well Corey Stoll as Ernest Hemingway is excellent. If only they had made the film about him.

Easy to evaluate this critique from the spelling error in the title.
