Not deep, but very, very funny. Wonderfully written and splendidly acted, especially by Diane Wiest in a wild, very different role. John Cusack does his usual extremely
solid work as the straight man holding it all together
Amazing 1930s production design by Santo Loquasto.
The film has a nice dark edge to off set its wacky, farcical tone. The very end is a bit sappy, but it also leaves the film with an interesting moral complexity. Not quite
great Woody Allen, but extremely good Woody Allen -- which means great by most filmmaking standards.
