To Rome with Love is a kaleidoscopic comedy movie set in one of the world's most enchanting cities. The film brings us into contact with a well-known American architect reliving his youth; an average middle-class Roman who suddenly finds himself Rome's biggest celebrity; a young provincial couple drawn into separate romantic encounters; and an American opera director endeavoring to put a singing mortician on stage. -- (C) Sony Pictures Classics

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Allen's creative revival comes to a juddering halt with a foursome of would-be amusing vignettes that barely muster a laugh between them."
‑ Trevor Johnston, Time Out
"Most of the characters are archetypes, yet Allen treats them with genuine affection and avoids the bitterness that's marred much of his recent work."
‑ Ben Sachs, Chicago Reader
"Weightless and harmless and made with good cheer."
‑ Will Leitch, Deadspin
"Compared to "Midnight in Paris," this homage isn't nearly as sure-footed."
‑ James Plath, Movie Metropolis
"These roughly connected comic sketches don't really add up to a whole movie, but there are enough laughs here and there to keep the film afloat."
‑ Robert Roten, Laramie Movie Scope
"Once upon a time, calling a movie "lesser Woody Allen" might be considered a slap in the face. Now, it's more-or-less expected."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"It's minor Woody, but it's still Woody."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"The value of 'Rome' is reduced by Allen's inability to fluidly meld the overlapping story lines."
‑ Al Alexander, The Patriot Ledger
"I liked it - but I can see why some won't."
‑ Steve Newall,
"Allen's Roman sojourn results in little more than a series of fanciful vignettes, occasionally insightful and not without the odd chuckle, but mostly just rather silly and inconsequential."
‑ Simon Foster,
"Allen's story moves along quite wonderfully, primarily because of his nuanced casting."
‑ Ricardo Baca, Denver Post
"Not great, but not grating."
‑ Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
"Inconsistencies in time and space elements, and a plot that echoes an episode of The Flintstones, join generally underdeveloped attempts at suspending disbelief to mar Allen's attempt to represent the city of Fellini."
‑ Matt Kelemen, Las Vegas CityLife
"There are four "stories", linked by the fact that they all take place in Rome. None of them are funny, interesting or in the slightest way connected to how real people exist."
‑ CJ Johnson, ABC Radio (Australia)
"After the surprise triumph of Midnight in Paris, Woody Allen returns with another charmer set in a foreign city... At 76, he's clearly at the top of his game."
‑ Jim Schembri, 3AW
