SIMPLE movies are SIMPLY the best! 
For your reviewing pleasure: Midnight in Paris

Here's IMDb's brief synopsis of the movie: A romantic comedy about a family traveling to the French capital for business. The party includes a young engaged couple forced to confront the illusion that a life different from their own is better.

Here's my take: Enjoy the simple shots of the opening scenery of a magical city, before you know it, you're intensely watching the characters develop to try and anticipate where the story line is going. I could not have anticipated the illusionary journey that Woody Allen takes you on, but before you know it (if you're into the arts) you are enjoying Owen Wilson's fantastical nights out on the town and rooting for him to take the risk we all know he wants to take! I love that it was so easy to get into the story and enjoy the ride. The setting speaks for itself, the music moves you along and in the end well lets just say I had a big smile on my face and wanted to watch it again! 

Sidenote: I'm a fan of the entire cast, but it was weird to see Owen and Rachel McAdams at odds when we know them all so well from Wedding Crashers :)
