What is it about Paris, Midnight, and Moonlight?

Midnight in Paris is both entertaining and beautiful to look at, especially in the rain.

Owen Wilson is perfectly cast in this romantic comedy with Rachel McAdams.  As soon as I saw Kathy Bates listed on the cast, I knew she would play Gertrude Stein.  Adrian Brodie does a hilarious Dali. 

The Fitzgeralds, Hemingway, Picasso and Cole Porter can all be found together in a smoky scene or two.

The movie made me want to pull out my copy of the Movable Feast again:
But Paris was a very old city and we were young and nothing was simple there, not even poverty, nor sudden money, nor the moonlight, nor right and wrong nor the breathing of someone who lay beside you in the moonlight. (p. 89)

I loved it. I've never willingly sat through an Owen Wilson film but he was so wonderfully tutored by Woody with his stammering way of expressing thoughts coming in from all directions that I liked him very much in this.

For some reason, I thought you would have seen this one... :-)

I'm an Owen Wilson fan, I liked him especially in Darjeeling
