Product Description

Amazon.ca

A collection of vignettes, loosely based on the book by Dr. David Rueben, written and directed by Woody Allen, Everything contains some very funny moments. It's easy to forget that the cerebral Allen excelled at the type of broad, Catskill, dirty jokes and visual gags that run amok here. It's also remarkable how dirty this 1972 movie really was--bestiality, exposure, perversion, and S&M get their moments to shine. The Woody Allen here, who appears in many of the sketches, is a portent of the seedy old Allen of Deconstructing Harry. Although the final bit, which takes place inside a man's body during a very hot date, is hilarious, most of Everything feels like the screen adaptation of a '70s bathroom joke book. Still, a must for Allen fans. --Keith Simanton

This message applies to ONLY the DVD version of the movie "Everything You've Always Wanted To Know About Sex".
This Woody Allen movie is a classic. It's from a time that was far less politically correct than these times so the humor will definitely seem crude. It consists of 4 or 5 vignettes each proceeded by a title. The vignette about transvestites is not very funny whereas the final vignette with Tony Randall & Burt Reynolds is a classic!!
NOW THEN--> There is one vignette about Woody & a girl who can only achieve orgasm in public. It's very funny.
BUT
The vignette is in Italian and is a parody of a Fellini movie. THE ONLY WAY THE PIECE MAKES SENSE IS IF YOU READ THE SUBTITLES AT THE BOTTOM OF THE FILM..BUT...
THE DVD VERSION DOES NOT CONTAIN THE SUBTITLES!!!!!!!!!
I don't know how this happened, but on my DVD, it was all spoken in Italian with NO subtitles!!! And there was no way to access English subtitles in the DVD menu! It makes absolutely no sense and the humor is totally missed without the subtitles! This inexcusable error destroys the enjoyability of the entire DVD!!
If you have the VHS version, stick with it.
DON'T BUY THIS DVD!!!!!!!!!!!! And write to United Artists or whoever put out this flawed DVD and tell them to fix it.

You have your shares of hilarity and boredom in this film. There are some entertaining segments, such as the first one, "Do Aphrodisiacs work?", such as "....cop a feel?" the medieval queen asks when Woody massages her breasts,when he says "TB or not TB, that is congestion" (blatantly a great satirical joke on Shakespeare's 'To be or not to be, that is the question', or when Woody says to the king when he catches him looking up the queen, 'Remember, when you told me if I was in town, I should look up your wife?'It's hilarious. But, the segment with Gene Wilder, "What is Sodomy?" was just boring and weird. There weren't any funny jokes, and there were awkward pauses between Gene and the sheep...it just didn't fall in place. Plus, the idea of having sex with a sheep is truly disgusting. If this segment had jokes, it would cut the mood and relax the awkward pauses between Gene and the sheep. "Are tranesvities homosexual?" was all right, but it was entertaining watching the man dress up in women's clothes and parade around the room mimicking women's movements. "Why do women have trouble reaching an orgasm?" is okay. It's not funny. But it's great fun seeing Woody smoke a cigarette incessantly and make movements that are supposed to be suave, I guess. The segment with the mad sex scientist, the beautiful blond, and Woody, is hilarious!! Especially when the tit escapes and Woody figures out how to capture it by trapping it into a giant bra. This is undoubtedly a satire about breasts. "What's My perversion?" was terrific, especially when the rabbi is entertained by a hooker and his wife is forced to eat pork at his feet. It's simply hilarious! The very last segment is something NOT to miss.Read more ›

Love Woody, but this film is not one of his best, or even close. Depending on how close to the surface your funny bone is, this is one of those movies in which you might occasionally say "that was clever" or "that was witty", but you'll rarely laugh out loud. The only time I laughed out loud was during one skit when Woody introduces himself as "Victor...Victor Shakapopolis". Other than that, the entire movie was pretty much laughless. The last segment, for example, is a classic and is the best one, and certainly deserved to be included, yet I can't imagine too many people rolling on the floor - it's simply not funny, just very clever. Not to say that's a bad thing, but we know Woody can make us laugh and he just doesn't do it in this film. The sheep sketch with Gene Wilder and the "What's My Perversion" sketch are in pretty bad taste, which might be ok if they were funny at all, but they're not. Too bad. It's one of the Woodman's few misfires. I can only recommend the DVD version if you have a few bucks to spare someday and are desperate for something to watch. The best thing about the film was some fantastic guitar/organ jazz played during a few skits. And the musicians/songs weren't even identified in the credits!

I found this to be a very hit-or-miss affair. The scenes which Woody doesn't appear in ("Are transvestites homosexual?", "What's my perversion?", and "What is sodomy?") miss his comic touch. Granted, Gene Wilder is deliriously funny as a man in love with a sheep (shouldn't the segment have been called "What is bestiality?"), but the other scenes never rise above bad Saturday Night Live-style parody. The cross-dressing scene goes for cheap and easy laughs, while the tired cliché of a game show turned upside down has only one funny moment (the rabbi's wife grimly feasting on a plate of pork).
When Woody does appear in a scene, the film comes alive. The 'Woody' character works perfectly in an anthology about the confusing nature of sex, because that for me is the essence of his character. His sexual confusion and manic personality kicks every situation into a higher gear. The Fool he plays in the first scene - a hapless borscht-belt style comic transported to a medieval court - delivers great line after great line in ridiculous old English ("TB or not TB, that is congestion"). His Fellini-esque Fabrizio (in "Why do some women have trouble achieving orgasm?"), confused about the frigidity of his newlywed wife, plays it cool in his Mastroianni sunglasses and world-weary Italian. But you know this guy is a hapless shnook anyway, when his wife can only get turned on for sex when it's in a public place. His Victor Shakapopoulous (sp?) saves the world from - yes it's true - a giant "tit" (size 4000X for those of you scoring at home).
But the most wonderful scene is the last one, "What happens during ejaculation?
