How can this film get a five star rating? The only incredible thing about it is Cate Blanchett's performance. The rest is first world nonsense you won't remember five months down the track.

The movie is a waste of time. But all the performances are really good. There is all this talent — but the subject of neurotic Americans is of less than miner importance and long boring dialogs don’t help to raise interest.

In true Woody Allen style, this was amazing. Cate Blanchett was perfect, you couldn't help be wrapped up in her crazy world and I was excited to be along for the ride!

Woody Allen got it right with this movie.From the casting,script and with all the actors,it made it all so believable.The story flowed so well that it took me into the characters with never a dull moment.It was easy to get caught up in the range of personalities.They were all so very different.The skill in putting it all together was obvious and I could not fault it.

Okay so I may be going it more or less alone here but this was not as great as the reviewers would have us believe. Sure Woody is a genius, Cate Blanchett is at the top of her game and the co-stars do a damn good job of this Streetcar rework, but having said that the whole thing is still a bit too hysterical and lacking in believability. Definitely worth a look but would work just as well on the small screen. Don't expect any laughs except uncomfortable ones.

Ok, I admit it. I'm a sucker for Woody Allen movies. 'Play it Again Sam' and 'Sleeper' still have me laughing out loud. 'Manhattan' and 'Annie Hall' are wonderfully warm and witty RomComs. 'Crimes & Misdemeanors' and 'Zelig' great comedy dramas.

Then there are his not so hot movies. The ones that make you appreciate Jasmine's words in Woody's latest: "Anxiety, nightmares and a nervous breakdown, there's only so many traumas a person can withstand until they take to the streets and start... More screaming." But, for every miss there's more than a few hits, from 'Take the Money and Run' to 'Broadway Danny Rose', 'Radio Days' and 'Deconstructing Harry.' So once a year I slope off to the new Woody movie hoping, fingers crossed, that he's back and every now and then - he is.

It really is a pleasure for a die hard Allen fan to see a really great return to form. The casting of 'Blue Jasmine' is spot on. Alec Baldwin, Peter Sasgaard, Sally Hawkins, comic Andrew Dice Clay - all superb. But it's Cate Blanchett as upper crust Jasmine that steals the show, as a character you'll literally love to hate and maybe end up loving a bit.

Certainly far from the knockabout slapstick genius of old, but with intelligent humour, a crackling script, expert casting and top notch production values, this, after the likes of 'Midnight in Paris', is Woody on a roll.

Cate Blanchett plays a New York socialite, that moves in with her sister in San Franciso. She has lost all her money, after she found out her husband was cheating the taxman. She is on pills like Xanax and drinks a lot. She has to deal with her sisters boyfriend, who is bruting and loud. Also she wants to go back to school and do fashion design. Her character is basically a mess. This film is Cate Blanchette showcasing her acting skills. There are many memorable characters in this film. The... More story is told a bit in flashback to how she lost her money and found out her husband was cheating on her. It then goes forward to the present from time to time. This is one of Woody Allen's best movies in a while. The dialogue is always one his best assests. The characters he rights are also very well written. I highly recommend this film.Hide

Six of us saw "Blue Jasmine" today - Woody Allen's latest film. This is not an easy watch and we were deeply divided with scores ranging from 1 to 4.5 (I was a 4). The story tracks the rather sad fall from grace and subsequent decline of a New York socialite who moves to San Francisco to live with her sister, having run out of assets and cash. She seems to exist on a diet of Xanax and vodka and this shows up in both her moods and behaviour. Some interesting characters along the way. Even... More those of us who didn't like the film agreed that it was worth seeing for Cate Blanchett's performance alone. 2.5 average from us.Hide
