Us Rating: ***

In this whimsical Woody Allen fantasy, anxious writer Gil (Owen Wilson) and his cranky fiancee (Rachel McAdams) visit Paris. One night, Gil hails a mysterious vintage Peugeot that transports him to the Roaring '20s. He then magically returns every evening to mingle with luminaries like F. Scott Fitzgerald and Pablo Picasso (Marion Cotillard plays the artist's mistress!). Wilson charms as a romantic enamored with the past, but McAdams can't overcome her shrewish role. Overall, the romp is a delight and a nostalgic postcard to the City of Light.
