"To Rome with Love."
Woody Allen's "To Rome with Love" looks more like "You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger" than "Midnight in Paris," which is bad news. It would be difficult to top the charm of "Midnight," even with a luscious Penelope Cruz.

Despite the tourist setting, "Rome"'s interwoven quirky romantic narratives and sprawling ensemble--including Allen himself as well as Alec Baldwin, Jesse Eisenberg, Greta Gerwig, Ellen Page, Judy Davis and Roberto Benigni--doesn't sell quite as easily as the romantic literary Paris nostalgia of "Midnight."

Italy gets the first bite of "Rome" on April 20 (which precludes a Cannes bow), while the US will wait until June 22. Check out the trailer below.

    It's Roberto Benigni, not "Begnini."
