5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best recent Woody Allen movies!!
I am a huge Woody Allen fan and adore his 'genre'...this is a great example of Woody's genre movies. I simply love the banter between the kooky characters and the love stories that all work out in the end...not in the way initially wanted or expected but still work out for the best. Love this movie and have watched it many times. I highly recommend it to Woody fans and to...

3.0 out of 5 stars Not so great Larry
Big fan of Seinfeld and Curb your Enthusiasm, so I picked this movie up even though I knew nothing about it , but I have to say that it wasn't that great.
It seemed like a made for TV movie at best ...
It said it was a comedy also but I didn't laugh or think anything was really funny about it.
The Movie is about a Guy just Ranting on how the world really is...

3.0 out of 5 stars Not so great Larry, Sept. 11 2014

The Movie is about a Guy just Ranting on how the world really is and most of the crazy talk is true but it didn't translate into Funny for me.

Overall id say to pass on this one or Rent if your an LD fan .

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Strange Movie, Feb. 18 2014

One never quite knows what to expect from a Woody Allan movie. However, this is a particularly offbeat movie, even by his standards. In other words, I have no idea who will really enjoy this movie and who will hate it. Essentially, Larry David's character is a very strange combination of Woody Allan and Larry David's persona in "Curb Your Enthusiasm". The movie was enjoyable, and amusing at times, but definitely very offbeat. Of course, as in any Woody Allan movie, all the performers are very good.

Some people will not like this one because of the main character's views on humanity. Some others who think that we humans could be a failed species will find this movie very rewarding ! Boris Yellnikoff is the man ...

This review is from: Whatever Works (Blu-ray) (Blu-ray)
It sounds strange to say, especially since I'm a Woody Allen fan, but
I'm not exactly sure why I liked this film. The acting is a mixed bag
at best. Allen retreads a lot of old material, sometimes painfully. The
film can be absurdly condescending to 'average people'.

But somehow, between my eye rolls, I quite enjoyed myself. Especially
looking back. While watching it I kept being hit by the faults and
flaws. But the next morning I remembered it with a smile. Go figure.
I'll probably re-visit it one day and wonder what I was thinking. It
got mostly mostly poor and fair reviews, but a lot of friends sheepishly
admitted they liked it too, so... I gingerly recommend it, with only
the request you don't come hunt me down if you hate it.
