Most of Woody Allen's films feel like vignettes frozen in time and this is no different. While it doesn't hold quite the thematic weight of the director's earlier work, it's fun to see a new generation of actors navigating Allen's wordplay, particularly Jesse Eisenberg who appears to have absorbed Allen's signature tics and stammers.

Watching a Woody Allen film is like wearing an old comfortable jumper ... you are not going to look fantastic in it, but it's comfortable, reassuring and cosy. If you can go with this unlikely story (let's face it, it really is!) then I dont see how you can fail to be enchanted by Stewart, Eisenberg and the witty script, even if you feel you are really seeing Mr Allen on screen reprising his famous "moose sketch" ad infinitum. To me, with his prolific output, Allen is the very definition of 70%.

Once the king of NY celluloid, Allen phones in this east meets west misfire. Set in the 1930s the mostly dull story masquerades as something more interesting, while its two-dimensional protagonists are overwhelmed by the weight of his valium-induced narration, not to mention their own boredom. Eisenberg’s predictable impersonation fails to recapture past Woody glories, Stewart plays her usual sleep depraved self under girlie garb, while Carrell is strangely restrained as a bigshot sugar daddy.

Time passes, the world turns, people grow into their shoes, and still the big questions never resolve in a satisfactory manner. "Dreams are dreams." And who better to capture the cozy aura of dreamland than Vittorio Storaro. It is among Allen's most gorgeous films. A sad and bittersweet romance, mild in comedy, with the two leads reprising their previously demonstrated chemistry.

Woody once again returns to the 1930's, but don't go expecting The Purple Rose of Cairo. Cafe Society is run of the mill Allen seemingly written and directed by an automaton; even his narration sounds tacked on and unenthused. It is so caught up trying to recapture the period, mostly in the form of pointless name dropping, that it forgets to tell a compelling story. Eisenberg is barely adequate as Woody's surrogate and the sub-plots are poorly developed. Allen needs to retire or take a break.

Woody Allen's Café Society (2016), not a remake of the Fred MacMurray & Madeleine Carroll screwball comedy Cafe Society (1939), even if the story takes place in the same era with a lot of 30s Hollywood name dropping. Café Society (2016) is a stylish look at an age passed with focus on the ironies of love. Doesn't come full circle, or perhaps it does, but in true Jewish spirit of Allen's sense of humor, it's a good sad laugh.

What Cafe Society lacks in substance, it makes up for in spades with style. The production design, costuming, and the incredibly warm cinematography all do wonders and make the film very inviting and charming. The performances are generally decent, with Eisenberg and (surprisingly) Kristen Stewart being my favorites. The characters, however, can seem a bit flat at times, as they all fill somewhat typical stereotypes. The ending does make the film more satisfying, but it still has its problems.

Woody Allen has a drawer. Each year he opens it and pulls up a script. I hope that he has some fresh material left in it, because this was really stale stuff. With great cinematography.

Café Society isn't peak Allen, in the manner of such recent high points as Midnight in Paris (2011) and Blue Jasmine (2013), but the film — which could be helpfully subtitled Manhattan v Hollywood — feels lively, lived-in and fallibly human.

Beautifully lensed and designed and with some interesting side characters and performances, but Eisnberg's Bobby is a horrible lead character. He changes from a simpering boy to an overconfident jackass, but maintains the detached and overly-mannered acting and seems to care only about his first love while the world happens around him.

There is a lesson here: if no one's talking about the new Allen movie and there are no nominations, don't watch it. It's the same, many times told story; nothing new.

Eisenberg's Woody impersonation is straight up creepy, and Blake Lively's Diane Keaton is actually Really impressive but also equally unsettling. Why are they imitating them? That question is way over this film's head. WATCH IT BECAUSE: Woody courageously foregoes the usual female "star" for a black hole. To this end, Kristen Stewart, as a gaping maw sucking all traces of light and life from every frame she touches, seems to have freed an as yet unseen virtuosity from within herself

Ends half way through. I was like "what? That's it?". I guess time flies when you're having fun, and it doesn't feel like an hour and a half have passed. On the other hand, the narrative structure wants a climax and there is none.

I don't mean this in a bad way, but I'm not entirely sure that Woody Allen is NOT still stuck in film school. I guess it's just his style. I found the overt narrator... distracting. I'm all for satire but I feel like this might be ten or twelve shades too hard on the nose, especially when it cuts back to New York. There is definitely good here but it feels so uneven. I don't know what else to say. It's a miss from me, although a strong, poignant and nuanced ending does bump the ranking up a bit.

Though Stewart is reliably good and the supporting cast is strong overall, the fantasy of Jesse Eisenberg whining his way through life as Stewart and Blake Lively fight and pine over him tips this comedy from satire to schmaltz.

Charming and delightful bauble; possibly Allen's most flat-out enjoyable film of the 2000s to date. Perfect recreation of American cinema's perception of 30s life and society, enacted by a flawless cast -- Eisenberg makes a fine Allen surrogate, and Stewart a touching leading lady. Beautifully melancholic undertone is the perfect frosting - detours into mob violence and fractious family dynamics underscore the hard reality of WWII waiting in the wings for these essentially vapid people.
