Firth's cynicism and Stone's sparkle make movie magic

While this is certainly not a great follow-up to last year's "Blue Jasmine," "Magic in the Moonlight" is an adorable film in its own rights, and this rests mostly on the chemistry between the two. That said, while I like their chemistry, the thought of them being a couple is pretty strange, even by today's standards; he's over 50 and she's a quarter century. Allen's dialogue still shines through, with some wry British wit thrown in. It's really a cute period piece that does make you think about what one is willing to believe in.
