Review: 'Midnight In Paris' 'Two Jews On Film' Only One Feels The Magic In This Fantasy Comedy (Video)

May 18th, 2011 2:17pm EDT
Midnight In Paris
I know critics are supposed to be objective (if that's even possible) but in the case of Woody Allen's new film, 'Midnight In Paris' it's going to be really hard. I thought it was one of the most beautiful, original, magical and romantic films I've seen in a very long time. It completely grabbed my heart.

The film opens with images of Paris...beautiful, moving images. The lights of the city, the empty streets, the gardens, museums, cafes, flea markets, parks and cathedrals. The montage goes on for quite a while...No actors...just visuals of this magnificent city....

And then we meet ...

Trailer Talk: This Week in Movies - 'Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,' & 'Midnight in Paris'

May 16th, 2011 2:00pm EDT
Pirates of the Caribbean
I still have not had the opportunity to see the much talked about “Thor,” which seems to be receiving mixed reviews from everyone I know. Some people I’ve spoken to have loved it, while others have despised it, so I will have to see it for myself soon.

Last week though, I checked out the indie drama “Hesher” starring Rainn Wilson, Natalie Portman, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt which I loved. It’s definitely not your typical story of recovery from grief, mainly because of the character Hesher, played by Gordon Levitt. The squatter invites himself into the home of Paul (Wilson) and his son TJ ...

The romantic comedy centers on a young couple engaged to be married that experiences a profound transformation during their visit to Paris. An idealistic man with a romanticized view of the city finds that there's plenty of truth to that old adage about the grass being greener on the other side.

Meanwhile, a representative for Michael Sheen has shot down rumors he's set to wed Rachel after she was photographed wearin...

Scarlett Johansson's representative has dismissed rumors the actress is pregnant with her first child.

The star was snapped jogging with rumored lover Sean Penn and pal Owen Wilson recently and one photo appears to show Johansson with a small belly bump, prompting speculation she's expecting.

However, her spokesman tells People.com the claims are not true, insisting the pictures are "misleading" - because Johansson is "in the best shape of her life" thanks to working out for 2012 movie The Avengers.

Her rep tells People.com, "Scarlett is not pregnant. She's been training for The Aveng...

The Cars sequel will feature a touching tribute to late movie icon Paul Newman, who voiced the role of Doc Hudson in the 2006 original.

Newman's car character will not appear in the new movie, but Newman and Doc will be honored, according to director John Lasseter.

He tells the Los Angeles Times' 24 Frames blog, "We have a lovely tribute to Paul in the movie, but we didn't feel it would be right to include him or the character."

Newman's Hudson was a former champion racecar before a terrible accident ended its career. He became a doctor, life coach and elder of Radiator Springs - the for...

'Hall Pass' Actually Beat 'Gnomeo & Juliet' At The Box Office

Hall Pass
Disney's animated gnomes have been forced to give up first place at the box office to Owen Wilson and his sex-crazed buddies following a weekend ticket recount.

Family favorite "Gnomeo & Juliet" was ruled the weekend number one on Sunday, but the estimates were wrong and now the Farrelly Brothers comedy "Hall Pass" has debuted in the top spot.

The news will be a blow to Elton John, who co-created the score fo...

Drive Angry 3D
I watched “The Fighter” last week, which was the final Best Picture Oscar nominee that I needed to see before the Academy Awards. Although I had heard mixed reviews of the David O. Russell drama, I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed the film.

Even though the story centers around a boxer, part of what makes it interesting is that there is less focus on the actual matches themselves and more on the main character Mickey Ward’s (Mark Wahlberg) struggle to separate himself from the people trying to control his life: his mother (Melissa Leo), his brother (Christian Bale), and his ...

Shining Star– Betty White: A “Golden Girl” is becoming a pin-up girl.

The experienced entertainer has her very own calendar.

The kitsch-tastic product is appropriately called “The Betty White Calendar”, and features the seasoned senior citizen posing on the cover with some serious man candy.

Owen Wilson found himself tongue-tied when he first worked alongside Robert De Niro on "Meet The Parents" - he struggled to read his lines whenever he made eye contact with the Hollywood legend.

The funnyman admits he was thrown off by De Niro's powerful presence, and he will never forget how much of a fool he made of himself on the set of the 2000 comedy.

We spotted Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp at "The Tourist" Madrid photocall yesterday, and the two couldn't look less comfortable. One of the complaints about their film is the pair lacks on-screen chemistry, and we can see why. They don't have any in real life either!

At premieres co-stars are often chummy with one another - they put their arms around each other and have big grins on their faces. These two look like stone cold statues.

You feel a deep, seething resentment festering inside of you, and you aren’t positive, but you’re relatively certain it has something to do with that big blob of goo you used to call a man sitting across from you in your apartment watching The Biggest Loser and shoveling Doritos into his gaping maw. CAN’T HE SEE THE IRONY?!

It might be that you’ve fallen out of love. You'll want to be sure, because all relationships have their peaks and valleys.

Everyone knows how exceedingly pleasant it is to fall in love. But that blissful period of infatuation can only last for so long before you have to decide whether it's for real.

Last Thursday I saw “I Love You Philip Morris” starring Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor. This film, which is written and directed by Glenn Ficarra and Jon Requa, the team behind “Bad Santa,” advertises itself as a funny movie; however it leans more dramatic than expected. Most of the hilarious lines are spoiled by the trailer, so when you get a chance to see the whole product, you’ll find yourself a bit let down.

Both Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor are incredibly convincing as a gay couple from the manner of their speaking down to the body language that they use. Their story is one that pull...

Actress Reese Witherspoon has ruled out ever starring in a superhero movie because futuristic films have no roles suitable for women of her age.

She tells Entertainment Weekly, "The movies that are being made feel different. There are a lot of really, really, really big movies about robots and things - and there's not a part for a 34-year-old woman in a robot movie.
