To Rome with Love 2012

     Intertwined stories of residents and visitors in Rome.  Hayley is an American tourist, she meets local attorney Michelangelo and they fall in love.  Psychiatrist Phyllis and retired music producer Jerry are her parents, they arrive to meet Michelangelo and his parents.  Antonio and Milly are newlyweds who move to Rome to meet his relatives and for his new job.  American architect John returns to Rome with his wife to rediscover his days there as a student.  John meets Jack who is a current student of architecture.  Jack lives with his girlfriend Sally and she invites her best friend Monica to stay with them.
     I did find this enjoyable with it does have faults.  It seems like too many people and situations packed into one film?  Also, Woody has a role as Jerry and it may be too much Woody to have him in the film?  Not as good as Midnight in Paris and somewhat like an over extended soap opera.  3 ½* (I liked this movie)   

112 min, Comedy directed by Woody Allen with Penelope Cruz, Alec Baldwin, Jesse Eisenberg, Roberto Benigni, Judy Davis, Flavio Parenti, Alison Pill.

Note:  Blockbuster 3*, imdb 6.4 out of 10, 43% critic 44% audience on Rotten Tomatoes.
