Daniel A. (Daniel) from EUGENE, OR
Reviewed on 2/8/2010...
Has all the typical "Woody Allen movie" cliches, without much to add. Although its routine for Allen, many characters and moments are amusing and make the film worth watching, especially for Allen fans.

Movie Reviews

If it wasn't Woody, you'd all love it

"The expectations are higher when an artist like Woody Allen makes a movie. If some no-talent little jerk with dirty hair made this, you'd all be falling over each other to meet the next Great Young Director. As it is, I will admit its not Woody's greatest effort, but it certainly is not as bad as most of you are making it out to be.And I agree that Leonardo is great and he stands out - his scene is classic Woody. Winona Ryder and Famke Janssen and Charlize are gorgeous and its all good, as far as I am concerned."
DVD Edition is so poor !

"Even if this movie deserves 4-5 stars (lots of jokes, funny situations, and despite what other comments says, really good acting) I can only give it two because of DVD edition. No alternative language, no subtitles, no bonus material, nothing. You'd get the same on TV. What's the point ? Is it soooo expensive to try to get some quality ? Hello Miramax, is anybody alive ?"
Watch it again-you'll like it

"Why do people keep expecting everything from Woody Allen to be "funny"? Like "Stardust Memories" or any number of his other movies, I would consider "Celebrity" more of a drama than a comedy. Yes, there are funny scenes, but there's more to it, I think. I didn't love the movie on first viewing, but I enjoy it more each time I see it. If you give it a chance and listen to what the director tells Melanie Griffith at the beginning about the "human condition", and how that relates to Kenneth Branagh (who I did NOT find annoying) at the end; and look deeper than Leonardo DiCaprio's small part, I think you'll find more than just jokes (or the absence thereof)."
