To Rome With Love

Rated R 111 minutes 2012

There is plenty to admire in Woody Allen's To Rome with Love. The problem is that it's scattered all over the place. Instead of one concrete story, the kind that Allen excels at telling, this film has four distinct subplots that have nothing to do with anything else. It's not exactly more than Woody can handle, but it's more than he should. Of the four stories, two of them have to do with love, which is appropriate given the location. The other two, however, are the ones worth watching: an aspiring opera singer who's amazing as long as he's singing in the shower (even during a real performance), and a middle manager (Roberto Benigni) who suddenly becomes famous for no reason and remains famous simply for being famous. It's not enough to sustain the whole film, but there are great moments in both stories worth a few laughs.
