Centred around a weekend party at the home of inventor Andrew Hobbs and his wife Adrian, attended by randy doctor Maxwell Jordan, his nurse Darcy, renowned philosopher Dr.Leopold Sturgis and his fiancée, this is a light comedy concerning their various emotional, intellectual and sexual entanglements, loosely based on Ingmar Bergman's 'Smiles of a Summer Night' .


Read what I have to say. Please. This movie reminds me... Oh, sorry, welcome to my little "movie critic" corner. It ain´t much, and you may disagree with me, but what the heck? It´s my opinion and I´m sticking to it... O.K., this movie reminds me a lot of Love and Death (because of the costumes and the placement of characters, nothing else) an earlier film by Allen too, but may I say much more hilarious... funny, for the non-pretentious. No, really, Allen kind of takes a break, and brings to life a character that frankly, doesn´t have any place for him. It may be somehow Shakespeare, it may be Allen, but it just ain´t that good. Regarding other elements, I must say that I was surprised to know it was made, or at least, released in 1982, because the photography itself makes the film look a little bit old. Well, that´s all from me. I´d advise you, if you haven´t seen any Allen movies, start with another one, say Love and Death, Bullets Over Broadway or Sleeper, for the matter. I do think A Midsummer Night´s Sex Comedy is just for the fans. That way you can "forgive and forget". I´m so obnoxious. Let´s see me doing a fun movie.
