I really want his films to be good and was thrilled with the triumph of Midnight in Paris, following what I believed to be a string of sub-par films (You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger, Whatever Works, Cassandra's Dream, Scoop, Melinda and Melinda, Anything Else) that seemed to overshadow his worthwhile projects during this period (Match Point, Vicky Cristina Barcelona.) Oh, how I longed for that Woody who had that string of great films in the 1970s, 1980s and even into the 1990s.

What followed Paris, however, was the utterly lackluster and instantly forgettable To Rome With Love.
