Enjoyed it despite myself. Your milage may vary.

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.
