Magic In The Moonlight – *1/2

Posted: August 11, 2014 in 2014, romcom, USA, X1/2

Another unremarkable Woody Allen.

There are a few funny quotes again, but the plot itself is silly. It’s a romantic comedy set in the late twenties about a rational magician who is asked to observe a psychic medium and declare her a fraud. It doesn’t take long for the skeptical scientist/illusionist to fall for the charms and talents of this medium, so much so that he actually falls in love with her or as ‘irrationally positive feelings towards her’ as he expresses it in one of the funnier moments.

Cole Porter’s ‘You Do Something To Me’ is heard throughout the movie. However this movie didn’t do anything for me. A nice evening out at the movies followed by talking about anything but this movie five minutes after the end credits.

Colin Firth is good though.
