  • Roger Ebert

    To Rome With Love isn't great Woody Allen. Here is a man who has made a feature every year since 1969, give or take a few, and if they cannot all be great Woody, it's churlish to complain if they're only good Woody.

  • Peter Travers

    This is the vital city that inspired Fellini – alive and lived in. When an actor falters or a joke falls flat, Roma stays fresh and dynamic. You can't take your eyes off it.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Alison Willmore

    The storyline involving Alec Baldwin, as an established architect on vacation in the city, is by far the most rewarding in the film, and it provides substance to what would otherwise be a strenuously whimsical endeavor.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

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

    Movieline Full Review
  • Kerry Lengel

    As cultural criticism, this commentary on life in the age of TMZ and the "Real Housewives" is hardly insightful, but it is executed to dizzying, Fellini-esque perfection, a miniature masterpiece amidst more modest amusements.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    At times this multiple-plot meander through the glorious labyrinth of the Eternal City can feel aimless, even lazy. But in the film's best moments, that willingness to wander works to its advantage.

    Slate Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    One of the most delightful things about To Rome With Love is how casually it blends the plausible and the surreal, and how unabashedly it revels in pure silliness.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • David Edelstein

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

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    The rest are hit-and-miss propositions with occasional flashes of wit, and a few standout performances. It's always good to see Judy Davis exchanging barbs with Allen, like when he boasts of having an IQ of 160.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    It's all rather sweet but instantly evanescent.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    Woody Allen has become such a beguiling travel agent that he rolls through these stories with a relaxed effervescence that is rather infectious.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    The current postcard from abroad is not great, but not grating.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    A charming but terribly self-indulgent trifle that's less than the sum of its many parts.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    Oh so slight and forgettable.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    In To Rome With Love, Allen approaches the leitmotif in a strange, oblique and interesting way. I fear, though, that the Italian entry in his "Let's Go: Grab Some Euro-Film Subsidies" period will be remembered as being forgettable.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    It's neither one of Allen's best, nor among his worst. It is also not likely to win audiences over with the passion that "Midnight in Paris" did.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Lorien Haynes

    More madness in the midday sun than Midnight In Paris. Baldwin, Cruz and Davis shine in a farce that overstretches itself into bellylaugh hits, but also some satirical misses.

    Empire Full Review
  • Chris Packham

    This Rome is luminous, and Allen, as in "Manhattan," is great at imbuing his film with a strong sense of location.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Joshua Rothkopf

    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."

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Peter Debruge

    This pleasantly diverting, none-too-strenuous arthouse excursion feels like a throwback to Allen's short-story anthologies, with the added pleasure of seeing a game cast play along.

    Variety Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    The film is constructed from four flimsy vignettes that are artlessly overlapped.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    Ambling, just-passable picture.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    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.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    Yet here's what's strange: As awful as To Rome With Love is - and the awfulness is unmistakable - it is, as an experience, not unpleasant. You will probably see several better movies this year that you will enjoy less. It's a mess, but it's Rome. It's a mess, but it's Woody Allen.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    The movie strolls through its paces, sometimes amusingly, though by the end you've heard "Volare" and "Arrivederci Roma" reprised often enough to make you wish "Volare" and "Arrivederci Roma" had never been written.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Mary Pols

    Other than Baldwin, Allen and Eisenberg - who is delightful - few of the performances are memorable. Page is miscast as a femme fatale, but adroit with Allen's lines, but the other women, Cruz, Pill and Gerwig hardly register.

    Time Full Review
  • Rex Reed

    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.

    New York Observer Full Review
  • Eric Kohn

    Even Allen himself, appearing in front of the camera for his first role since 2005's "Scoop," looks a little lost in the mess.

    indieWIRE Full Review
  • Peter Bradshaw

    Baldwin has some brilliant moments as he icily dismisses Monica's posturing: his final closeup – heavy-lidded, undeceived – is fascinating and rather chilling.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Philip Kemp

    Four trivial stories, forced laughs: don't expect much more from Allen's latest postcard from Europe.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    Never coalesces into anything memorable, much less meaningful.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    Much of the young cast - especially a miscast Page - make the oft-repeated mistake of saying Allen's dialogue as he might say them; the result is a lot of hyperarticulation, stammering and gesturing.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    Allen the writer-director has gone tone-deaf this time around, somehow not realizing that the nonstop prattling of the less-than-scintillating characters almost never rings true.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    It's either a failed experiment or a movie that was rushed through production so Allen could fulfill his one project-per-year commitment.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    A giant disappointment. It's as bustling as its titular city's piazzas, but it goes nowhere.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Bill Weber

    "With age comes exhaustion," according to a rueful line late in the film, and it serves as a fitting diagnosis for Woody Allen's latest fallen souffle set in a European cultural capital.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    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.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • David Denby

    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]
