#314: Movie Mondays – Midnight in Paris April 9, 2012

Midnight in Paris

Midnight in Paris (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Year: 2011

Genre: Comedy/Fantasy/Romance

Description from http://www.IMDb.com: A family travel to the French capital for business. The party includes a young engaged couple who are forced to confront their differing views of a perfect life.

Wife: I loved it.  I had forgotten it was a Woody Allen movie but was reminded by the opening shots.  Allen clearly loves Paris the way he loves New York.  It’s an enchanting story – funny, beautiful, romantic.  Owen Wilson was great.  A magical story about Paris in the 20s.  Kathy Bates is a perfect Gertrude Stein.

Husband: It was creative.  I liked the cameos by historical figures.

Husband-Wife Compatibility Rating: 7 (Wife gave it a 9, Husband a 5.  It was romantic enough for Wife but not funny enough for husband).

  1. As always, appreciate your thoughts, but I just can’t take Owen Wilson. He just wears me out after only a few minutes. So, won’t watch this one. HF

      I can see why you might find him annoying. Since you seem to think a little like my husband, you are better off not watching it. Hubby didn’t loveit!

    Oh, I’m so glad to have discovered your blog through your comment on mine! We loved Midnight in Paris! Very creative and since we don’t mind Owen Wilson we gave it a thumbs up. What a great post!

  3. My husband and I loved that movie, especially Adrien Brody (one of our favorites) as Dali. We thought it was pretty hillarious when Owen Wilson was talking to the surrealists about his situation 🙂
