Relatively amusing, and Woody has some decent lines (the one about the difference between love and sex springs to mind), but it goes out on a silly note, and it's probably not one I'll be returning to. Much, much better than his early "funny" ones, though!

not a masterpiece by any strech, but woody allen certainly put his mark on it, and that is enough to make it somewhat interesting. for anyone who liked "love and death", i would definately recommend this, but anyone who doesnt follow woody allen blindly into any abyss he may enter, this is not anything more than a slightly funny, only for intellectual's movie, uneventful, but not without merit.

Mia Farrow is to Woody Allen movies what Roger Moore was to the Bond movies.

A pretty cute little movie with some amusing scenes. I'm used to Woody Allen movies stretching months or years in story time (Annie Hall, Manhattan, Crimes and Misdemeanors, etc.), so it was kind of interesting to see a 24-hour Allen movie. I probably could have lived without the supernatural elements (I found them kind of jarring) and I get tired of seeing Allen play a differently-named Alvy Singer over and over, but Mary Steenburgen and Julie Hagerty give very funny and likable performances.

You can definitely tell that Woody wrote this in 2 weeks, feels a bit forced at times. Mia Farrow is awful, one scene in particular made me cringe. A few good moments but very forgettable. Woody's worst 80's film.

This is light stuff, not nearly as interesting or funny as other Allen films, but nonetheless pretty entertaining at times. While I enjoyed seeing a Woody Allen period piece, I couldn't help but wonder WHY it was a period piece. Seems like the exact story could have been told in present day New York. But then I don't think it would have stood out whatsoever amongst all of his other, better movies.

A rare Woody Allen misfire. Full of failed jokes, poorly-written characters, & an ending that was just plain stupid. A few scenes [mainly Allen & Farrow] make it worthwhile.

My decade-plus-old memory of this being pretty plodding and laughless: mostly true, but this time I was kinda into it. I mean, yeah, this one is rarely actually funny, but you do get some okay gimmicks like Woody flying on a bicycle and José Ferrer busting a fatal nut. It's also pleasantly shot by Gordon Willis, has a nice idyllic setting, and isn't long enough to ever get brutally dull. Lightweight, but for something thrown together in less than a month, it's fine.

Enjoyable throw away Woody film, with a sextette of stars in good form. Hits its stride in the second half after a sluggish first when each man is set up to be desperately pining for at least one of the other woman, Allen has fun letting each infatuation run its awkward course. Roberts is terrific in his most substantial role with Woody; Steenburgen has a pair of scenes that rank with the most hilarious in all Woody films, and Ferrer is terrific as a pompous professor. Fun if you're a Woody fan.

It may not Woody Allen's best work, but the frothy, fun A Midsummer Night's Sex Comedy is still worth a look.

Solid mid-level Woody Allen. It's a little light and predictable but it's funny and endearing.

Maybe not up to the standard of Woody Allen's best comedies, but it's still pretty darn funny in places and just the right length (85 minutes). Jose Ferrer is totally hilarious.

At first it's pretty lame, with most of the jokes falling flat. But towards the end it comes together - or, rather, falls apart - quite splendidly. Not Woody's best work, but I'm sure there are worse. "It's nothing serious. Just an arrow in his heart."

That guy in the white beard reminds me of Dustin Hoffman. It's not him. I checked.

A long time since I saw Woody Allen's ode to SMILES OF A SUMMER NIGHT, but my recollection is that there were amusing moments but that it is not his greatest work.

Mia Farrow was a horrible horrible HORRIBLE actress who would occasionally luck out and wind up in really really good movies-- this isn't one of them. Woody's worst until that Christina Ricci thing.

Maybe this would grow on me more after a second viewing. For now the dramatic elements work better than the comedic ones. I did laugh at times, though. "You're a man of reason! A pacifist! You're an animal!"

I had trouble getting into it. It had it's funny moments, but not enough to make me really enjoy it. A forgivable misfire from the great Woody Allen. Worth a watch if you are a fan, but if not you can avoid it without worry.

I loved Woddy Allen's character, but the plot was not very creative or enjoyable.

A fun and funny little homage to Bergman-style chamber drama, perhaps slight compared to Allen's most significant works, but I feel it has been maligned a bit unjustly. It's probably most notable as a recess from his typically urban environments: pastoral, seasonal, a lulling evocation of long summer days in the country.

Allen's homage to Smiles of a Summer Night pales in comparison to Bergman. Not many good jokes here.

Nifty little amalgam of Smiles of a Summer Night and Uncle Vanya with a dash of Shakespeare filtered through the zany Allen mind. Possibly his best comedy.

Silly in a lighthearted way midsummer night brings forth the drawings about how romantic human relationships function and by touching on this and that explains where does sex fit in the process. It never lingers on one topic for long ultimately giving way to more silliness and eventually starts to drag. Losing the basis it fails to rely on characters and acting and this wibbly wobbly contraption leaves you wanting for more but then it is morning's documentary time and you're moving on already.

Delightfully droll if uneven film. Allen this time deals with his favorite subjects in a turn-of-the-century period context.
