    To Rome with Love is light and fast, with some of the sharpest dialogue and acting that he's put on the screen in years. [2 July 2012, p.84]

    To Rome with Love - rangy, vaguely ridiculous and trepidatiously optimistic - is Allen's film for tomorrow.

    I was blissed out during much of To Rome With Love, but I have to acknowledge its creepy side.

    It's almost cruel to criticize something so essentially lighthearted and disposable, but it must be said that a lot of these jokes feel distinctly recycled, mainly from "Broadway Danny Rose."

    To Rome with Love is so inviting, and most of its gaggle of characters so diverse and likable, it's doubly disappointing that Allen, who wrote and directed the movie, can't think of what to do with them.

    To Rome with Love has moments of isolated charm, but it's only moderately entertaining, it isn't very funny, and it's entirely too long.

    For better or worse, Woody Allen turns out a movie every year. Last year's "Midnight in Paris" was better than better; that is to say, sublime. To Rome With Love is worse than worse, as inert as its predecessor was inspired.

Much better than Midnight in Paris, with much better cast and story (or should I say stories?) ! I really love the new Woody Allen and every movie he made on the last years. This one sits as my favourite along Whatever Works. The man is really stronger when it comes to comedy, and is great to see the man back on front of the cameras. Expand

It follows four stories (some inWoody Allen continues his tour of Europe (and its backers) with this latest foray to the Eternal City. It follows four stories (some in subtitles): young Americans in love, newlyweds who lose their way, an ordinary man who becomes famous and an undertaker who loves to sing opera. Each unfolds in fluid timelines with casts of well-known actors from both continents. The narratives start out with upbeat promise, but ramble on too long and lack sufficient humor to sustain the momentum. While it's not one of his best, it's fun to see Allen onscreen (giving himself the best lines). Of course, Rome is showcased to lovely advantage and the actors do commendable jobs. Despite the energy, it simply loses steam and stimulation. Expand

    However there are lots of excellent ideas in the plot, Allen did not even try to develop them, so movie left immature and unable to assert its meaning

    What really sucks the energy out of you is the barrage of fast talking, overly emotional men, who never seem to be in control of anything.What really sucks the energy out of you is the barrage of fast talking, overly emotional men, who never seem to be in control of anything. When and where did this image of men ever emerge ?
    A laugh is usually created by something you can relate to in real life. There is nothing in this movie that is anywhere close to real life.
