The film seems to have joined ''Film/MatchPoint'' and ''Film/VickyCristinaBarcelona'' as one of Allen's more acclaimed later films. It has also seemingly struck a chord with audiences and become Allen's highest grossing film domestically (a title previously held by ''HannahAndHerSisters'' since [[TheEighties the '80s]]) and internationally.

* BillingDisplacement: Adrien Brody gets second billing on the poster, even though he's only in one scene. Owen Wilson (the star) is listed last. Of course, Creator/WoodyAllen tends to list the cast of his movies in alphabetical order by last name (on the posters at least) which explains it.

* HappyRain: Gil ''loves it'' when it rains in Paris. Gabrielle does as well. Quite possibly AuthorAppeal. This is also brought up in ''EveryoneSaysILoveYou''.

** More traditionally the yellow car that Gil travels to the '20s in is a reference to Jay Gatsby's yellow car in TheGreatGatsby.

* ViewersAreGeniuses: Some of the people Gil meets aren't as well known as others. Knowledge of [[Creator/LuisBunuel Luis Buñuel]]'s filmography is required to get one joke in particular. JosephineBaker is not even identified by name and audiences not familiar with her are left only with Gil's reaction to know she's supposed to be anyone important.

* FakeAmerican: Brits Creator/TomHiddleston as Creator/FScottFitzgerald and Michael Sheen as Paul Bates.



* PlayingAgainstType: Owen Wilson, normally known for playing laid back characters, plays Creator/WoodyAllen's nebbish persona here. And it ''works''.



* StuntCasting: Carla Bruni's casting got a substantial amount of press. She plays a tour guide and has less than 5 minutes of screentime.



* WriteWhoYouKnow: Gil has done this with his novel.
