To Rome With Love Review

Back in this post, I wrote that I was looking forward to seeing the Woody Allen film To Rome With Love. I watched it today and it was hilarious. There are so many quirky characters who are followed while in Rome. I laughed at its absurdity the whole way through. It is also very sexually charged, fitting for its setting though! It comments on celebrity and love, but overall, it's just plain crazy. It's no Midnight in Paris which I can watch over and over again, but it's worth it to see once.


  1. I agree, I thought it was good. Italians were very boyfriend and I were waiting for the previous showing to end and we heard roars of laughter and a lot of happy people leaving. When I went to teach the following week, most of my (italian) students hated it, said it made Italians look stupid, it wasn't funny etc. boh! I thought the Benigni storyline was very en point , especially in Italy, and the rest was just in good fun. The only storyline I didn't care for was the wife who 'gets lost'. I thought the character was really silly and pointless.

    1. How interesting! Grazie for sharing!

      I'd keep Milly and her being starstruck with the movie star, but skip her being so very naive and getting lost, which irritated me too.
