Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A minor comedy in Allen's work, though Mia Sorvino, who won an Oscar, shines as the prostitute, despite the director's condescending"
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"brilliant"
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"One of Woody Allen's best."
‑ Gerry Shamray, Your Movies (cleveland.com)
"'Mighty Aphrodite' only occasionally sparkles with witty dialogue reminiscent of Allen's earlier films, and that's not enough to resurrect the old Woody Allen magic."
‑ Betty Jo Tucker, ReelTalk Movie Reviews
"Same ol' Woody, though not as effective as some of his past work."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"One of the best Woody Allen films from this decade. A very funny movie that made Mira Sorvino a star."
‑ Larry Carroll, Countingdown.com
"Surprisingly sweet Allen entry brought to life by Mira Sorvino."
‑ James Plath, Movie Metropolis
"Good, but not great Woody Allen."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
