Phips’s review published on Letterboxd:
Well, that's 3/3. I've liked every Woody Allen film I've seen. I now have 2 Woody Allen films in my top 10 favorites of 2016. This is starting to get a little dangerous; I might have a new addition to my list of favorite directors.
I'm discovering that I tend to really like period pieces and I was under the impression this was about a kid rubbing shoulders with the rich and famous in Hollywood. While that is partially correct I was not expecting the love triangle that appeared; parts of that dynamic were a little absurd but overall I had no real issue with it.
The heavy Jewish overtones added so much to this film, best of which was the comedic relief injected by the parents.
