    A bouquet of snappy one-liners and disarming nuttiness.
  2. This is an excellent comedy, and the fact that it's made by a filmmaker with even better movies on his resume is nothing to hold against it.
  3. It's a brilliant concept, one of Allen's finest. Love the concept, baby. But the execution is, well, average.
  4. 50
    The best thing about the movie is its premise: It's a good idea, taken from before Allen's recent losing streak, but it's stretched too thin for its own good.
  5. 50
    Offers slim pickings for viewers, regardless of whether they're fans of Woody Allen or not. And I'm sure the French will love it.
  6. It feels old, tired and given-up-on, maybe three drafts shy of minimal production level.
  7. It's as sad and painful to report as it is to experience, but Hollywood Ending makes the conclusion inescapable: Woody Allen has become his own worst enemy.

    Allen takes an interesting enough premise into sitcom territory in Hollywood Ending, an astonishingly boring and vacuous excuse for comedy,Allen takes an interesting enough premise into sitcom territory in Hollywood Ending, an astonishingly boring and vacuous excuse for comedy, full of recycled jokes, plot, ideas, and scenes that ramble on forever with no end.
