Woody Allen is one of my all time favorites, so I had to see Magic in the Moonlight on opening weekend. This is definitely one of his lighter films, falling more under the category of Midnight in Paris or Scoop.
Although the film was entertaining, there were a few places where it fell flat. First, the jokes. Not everyone can deliver a Woody Allen one-liner, and as much as I love both Colin Firth and Emma Stone, the jokes weren't landing with a punch. Overall, their acting was fine; just not funny.
The 30 year age difference between Colin Firth and Emma Stone, who play the romantic interests, is INCREDIBLY uncomfortable to watch!!
Overall, I enjoyed the film but I didn't love it. If you are a Woody Allen fan then I would recommend for you to see it. If you don't care about Woody Allen then this is probably a Netflix film for you. x
