The first thing that grabbed me about this film was the interaction with the viewer. When Woody Allen starts the film by illustrating its themes directly to the audience with a couple of jokes, I realized that this was not an ordinary romantic comedy. Furthermore, there are a number of scenes where the line between screen reality and fantasy are fantastically blurred. I especially enjoyed Alvy's experience while waiting in line at the movie theater. If only we could all have such an ample comeback!
The story doesn't have any tidy closure, and that's a lot more reflective of the general state of relationship today. No "happily ever after" here! Just confusion, laughter, love, and depression. Part of the joy in this film is seeing some brief cameos from the "soon to be famous" (Sigourney Weaver, Jeff Goldblum, etc). All in all, not a bad way to spend a couple of hours.

Woody Allen is a classic no matter who you are, or if you like him, you have to admit that. Even though he plays the same characters in all his movies. Watching Annie Hall I thought his views were funny, but his character is just soooo annoying, in this and all of his movies. Movies like "Celebrity" where he writes and doesn't act, are a lot better. God bless you Woody Allen for ya' writing and directing talents, but God help ya' if you can't act.

Annie Hall is too long, and disjointed to be Allen's great one, it lags in places, but its still poccesses a certain charm, but his later movies are much better, like the overlooked Celebrity. For fans only.

This movie may have been a classic in its day, but I think it may be past its prime. I have only ever seen one other Woody Allen film, and maybe those who particularly enjoy his work will still love this, but I found the dialogue a bit dated and the style of Allen a bit choppy and uncoordinated.

The characters were very believable, the problems were not exaggerated, but I didn't feel a connection or any empathy towards the characters and couldn't really relate to their problems.

It actually reminds me a lot of "The Five Year Engagement" which just left theaters and I would advise anyone born in 1985 or later to check out that instead or perhaps a different Jason Segel movie.

I have no doubt this movie was amazing for a long time, but in 2012 I only found it to be just OK.
