5.0 out of 5 stars Bullets Over Broadway March 5 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is one of Woody Allen's best movies. Brilliant dialogue an excellent acting by Diane Wiest and Chaz Palmintieri. A debate on art versus morality.

My top three favorite Woody Allen films will always stay the same (3- "Sleeper", 2- "Annie Hall", and one- can you guess it? thatt's right "Bullets Over Broadway." This film is irresistable to so many groups. People who love the roaring twenties, People who take an avid interest in theatre, People who love gangster pictures and crime, and ofcourse Allen films.
John Cusack plays the Woody charector in this satire. He is a cafe playwrite, who fails to turn up grasping story lines, and instead he produces rather heavy dramas. So it is no surprise that his newest play does not appeal to his producer, but on a total chance, the playwrite finds an investor in gangster form. There's one nitch however. The playwrite must give a crucial role to the gangster's girlfriend, who's talent is substantialbly minimul. And as the play is finnaly up in rolling, more problems surface. Such as the playwrite's affair witht the vain prima donna, a leading actor with a terrible eating habbit, a supporting actress' yippy chiwawa, and many more.
Classic in Allen pics, Bullets Over Broadway shines as one of the best.
The performances are brilliant. Wiest turns up a hillarious and classic prima donna role, as Jennifer Tilly acts up a comic storm as the missed casted psychiatrist.
Filled with laughs and wonderful writing, "Broadway" is one not to miss.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very funny, physically beautiful and very smart April 17 2011
By K. Gordon TOP 50 REVIEWER
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny, funny, funny!! May 17 2004
By A Customer
And funny. Great casting, great script, funny dialogue and good directing. The wonderful thing about this whole flick -- Woody Allen decided NOT to be in it. One of his better decisions he's made in years. (Thanks for giving us a break and breather from your repeatible and stale roles Woody!) Don't miss this little-known gem.

5.0 out of 5 stars Woody Allen's best -- at least for casting Sept. 22 2002
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe no poll has ever been made about which one is most deemed as Woody Allen's masterpiece by far. I once thought that we seemingly tend to pick whichever we can best relate to, but recently when I had a chance to sit down and watch five of his movies all over again -- "Annie Hall", "Manhattan", "Hannah and her sisters", "Bullets over Broadway", "Mighty Aphrodite" -- I realized that any of us could easily relate to at least something in each of those great films. That would define Allen's genius when it comes to directing (romantic or un-romantic?) comedies. When it comes to casting, though, "Bullets over Broadway" must be the best of all, featuring the finest performance of every actor. Not only the credit must go to those in lead roles (John Cusack -- who played Woody Allen's would-be character, Dianne Wiest, Jack Warden, Jennifer Tilly), but the supporting cast was superb as well (with Tracy Ullman as Eden, Chazz Palmenterri as Cheech, Rob Reiner as Flender, Mary-Louise Parker as Ellen, and Stacey Nelkin -- Allen's ex-girldfriend -- as Rita). This film was perfect in each of its scenes, but if I had to pick my favorite one, it would be the final dialogue between Cusack, Parker, Reiner and Nelkin. I don't remember having heard in any other comedy a dialogue that's so hilarious and so thought-provoking at the same time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Strange Bedfellows Feb. 24 2002
Format:VHS Tape
I'm usually pretty hit-and-miss with Woody Allen films, and in this case, it was a definite hit. The film explores the behind the scenes goings-on of a 1930's Broadway show being put into production. John Cusack stars as the self-important young writer/director who finds his play bankrolled by a Mafia kingpin, which necessitates having the kingpin's mistress in the play. Chazz Palmenterri plays the mistress' bodyguard, a man who has a knack for re-writing scenes. The actors in the play are Dianne Wiest, Jim Broadbent, Tracy Ullman, and Jennifer Tilly. All the performers in the movie are exceptional, with special praise to Wiest and Tilly. The dialogue is typically funny for an Allen film, and the plot moves along well. The behind the scenes aspect of the film works very well, and Allen does an amazing job (along with the production team) of re-creating a 1930's atmosphere. The film speaks about the need for art to be accessible to everyone, and not simply a self-indulgent activity that strokes one's ego. This is certainly one of Allen's most accessible films.
