* ShoutOut: Receives one (or rather, Gil does) from Edward Rutherfurd's 2013 historical fiction novel ''Paris''
--> '''Hadley:''' Don't go disappearing on us, like Gil.
--> '''Claire:''' Who's Gil?
--> '''Hadley:''' Oh, he was a nice young American that we all thought had promise. And then suddenly he wasn't there anymore. Disappeared without a word.
** More traditionally the yellow car that Gil travels to the '20s in is a reference to Jay Gatsby's yellow car in TheGreatGatsby.

Owen Wilson -- the latest actor to be handed Allen's "screen persona" nebbish character -- plays Gil, a hack but successful Hollywood screenwriter who dreams of writing novels. He and his fiancée Inez (Creator/RachelMcAdams) are visiting Paris with her parents; Gil falls in love with the city while Inez dreams of living in a Malibu suburb. One night, as Inez and her friends go out dancing, Gil takes a walk and discovers a square where every night at midnight, a magic car shows up that transports him to 1920s Paris. He continues to travel there, much to Inez's anger and suspicion.

* AuthorAvatar: As is customary with Creator/WoodyAllen films, main character Gil is a stand-in for Creator/WoodyAllen, from the tucked-in shirts Gil wears to the nervous way Gil talks. He also leaves his fiancée and hooks up with a much younger woman.

However, Allen himself noted that Owen Wilson was different from his usual actors mostly in that he was West Coast and WASP, whereas his usual heroes were more on the East Coast liberal intelligentsia side of the equation.

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''.
