Critics reviews

[The] deliberately implausible scenario… allows for all sorts of dim-bulb sequences in which Allen bumps into things, gives random directions to cast and crew, and looks the wrong way during meetings with Williams. Yet if there are innumerable dud gags strewn throughout the proceedings, and a third-act father-son dynamic is hopelessly tacked on for narrative convenience, the sheer ridiculousness of Allen actually pivoting a movie around such a goofball conceit remains mildly charming.
