4.0 out of 5 stars
Woody being Woody, July 6 2003
It's a typical Woody Allen nervous character starring opposite a hilariously foul-mouthed Mira Sorvino in "Mighty Aphrodite." BTW, Tyresius was from Thebes, to clear that up from a previous reviewer (Classical Greek major here). Sorvino artfully drops some bombs that are funny just based on the shock value. After she and Woody first hook up for a jaunt about town and they return outside her apartment, she says, "I feel like I owe you a big f......" and you think "-avor" (favor) is coming next. But NO! True to her character, "uck" follows the f! Really funny line, but not a film to watch with the kids -- hence the R rating.
