Dalibor's rating of the film Magic in the Moonlight

Had a story like this fallen in the hands of a less capable director/writer it would most likely be unbearable to sit through. As Woody recycles his favorite themes yet again, it's still a rather basic romantic comedy with both romance and comedy sweetened to the point that'll certainly reject a more critical viewer. But with a couple of sequences, notably featuring Firth reexamining himself, worthy of a praise.
