OVERRATED 'Midnight in Paris': At this stage, maybe you're simply onboard with Woody Allen's every cinematic turn or you're left behind. As fun as this film's knowing jabs toward legendary writers and artists often were (you'll understand when you see it), its core seemed too slight to leave any emotional impact. Nearly everyone was an overblown caricature except Owen Wilson, and even he mostly just looked happy to be there. It's a shame the feeling wasn't mutual.
