This picture has real magic in it for me. It perfectly captures the time period of the 1930s, and it's just full of comedy gags throughout the movie that are just plain fun.

Sean Penn plays a fictional jazz guitarist who just knocks me out in this film. And Samantha Morton just about steals the show without a word of dialog, able to hear only, but not speak.

This is a don't-miss for good music and good old-time fun. Enjoy a sensitive and utterly charming movie.

Woody Allen brings us a lighthearted look at the world's second-greatest jazz guitarist, Emmet Ray, an egotistical lout deftly played by Sean Penn.

This is a delightful film showing off a full range of jazz music and artistic obsession--a mockumentary not to be missed.

I liked the music in this movie.

Plays ukelele and sings:

Oh lime-house blues,
I've the real lime-house blues.
Can't seem to shake off those sad China blues.

I'm forever blowing bubbles.

I'll see you in my dreams.

All of me, why not take all of me.

So wrap your troubles in dreams and dream your troubles away.

It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing.

It's GOT the swing!
