This film about Paris as a center for artistic expression is a lovely tribute to the city: I wonder what made Woody Allen fall in such love with Paris? All of his earlier movies are all about the beauty of Manhattan, but Paris now seems like his true love. Owen Wilson does surprisingly well as the lead actor, although he isn't required to do much except act befuddled and stunned by meeting such historical figures as Hemingway and Gertrude Stein. Overall, the film is worth watching, but there isn't a lot of substance in it.
I took a day off work, and watched this movie as part of enjoying the beautiful weather; or, at least, to avoid my allergies.
Wow. Hard to know exactly what to say about this sometimes profane, always irreverent, profoundly hilarious, and wonderfully written and performed musical. It had its South Park moments (especially in the Cartman-esque voiceovers that explain the life of Joseph Smith), of course. And the profanity was extreme enough that it startled me: maybe because when I grew up it would have been unimaginable for such profanity to have been on Broadway. Overall, though, a fantastic production with a great cast.
