Rate-a-Trailer: Woody Allen’s ‘Midnight in Paris’
While there are plenty of cinephiles who would argue that everything that Woody Allen has produced since his heyday is absolute crap, we were actually fond of Match Point and Vicky Christina Barcelona. Unfortunately, Midnight in Paris — which opens May 20th and will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival — looks to be one of his duds in spite of its lovely setting. It probably doesn’t help that Owen Wilson is playing the Allen stand-in here, which just makes the whole thing feel slightly off, like some kind of self parody. Or maybe we’re just biased because of the rather barfy poster, which looks like someone’s kid ‘shopped it. Click through to watch the trailer, and let us know what you think in the comments.
